Agreed

I think breadface might add a nice bit of frivolity to your collections of impressionistic New York street paintings and photographs of Earth Mothers bursting with inner light. Namaste

I missed getting the impressionistic New York street painting. I was too late to the table so to speak. But alas ... I have my eye on a nice Colin Campbell Cooper.

Has Bread Face been graced with a red dot at this point? Or is he still for sale? How much does one ask for 'Bread Face? ... not that I'm buying.

On the other hand ... I don't say no to all pieces that might be termed 'contemporary.' I have 30+ pieces by photographer, Elisabeth Sunday.

It's okay, he was still later to Impressionism than you were to the table

I think Saatchi may have bought it. It was the poster and catalog piece for a pretty big survey of contemporary sculpture half a decade ago.

Again, too late to the table ... not that I'm truly disappointed this time.

For many years I seriously persued modern art (I have a masters in art history)and kept up with the latest developments. Then one day -- back in the late 80s -- my interest wained. It didn't die, but it seriously wained. It can still draw my interest ... but it takes more than the ordinary to do so.

Art got really bad in the 80s. I would've given up too.

I'm excited to see this de Kooning exhibition. Anyone been yet?

Painted these some time ago- would call them 'studies'. Do mostly figurative stuff. Largish, in the 6' by 5' vicinity. I like Freud and Fischl and more recently Samantha French who's pics of swimmers at the TNC Gallery in NYC right now.

I start with a charcoal sketch and then develop the form and contour from there, building depth very gradually.

this one is a play on the Michelangelo sculptures in the tomb of Juliano de Medici

I'm still trying to warm up to sculpture.

BTW holy hell is framing expensive. Almost half the cost of the print. ffffuuuu.gif

If you're rich enough to have a spare room in your house that you're willing to fill with trash, the price isn't really an issue.
