Carol (goodreadscomcarolann) | 1140 comments That is beautiful!

Stubbs was basically self-taught. He seriously studied the anatomy of the horse over an 18 month period (he rented a farmhouse in Lincolnshire village). He established a reputation as the leading painter of portraits of the horse. I am most familiar with Horse Attacked by a Lion.

Woodmere Art Museum’s new exhibition, “Quita Brodhead: Bold Strokes,” showcases the evolution of the artist’s oeuvre from early figurative work into bold, gestural abstraction....

Charles Matton (French 1931-2008)

"The artist was best known for his enclosures, or 'boites' - miniature representations of real-life interiors, including the studios of artists such as Vermeer, Bacon and Rembrandt - which he built from 1985 until his death in 2008, painstakingly sculpting every detail, from broken sockets to peeling wallpaper."

My favorite Emmet Gowin photo was of the Little girl with her hands entwined. That and the one of his nude wife peeing in the barn. Two turkeys is also a delight

Geoffrey | 201 comments Interesting sideline not particularly relevant to this message thread but interesting nevertheless. An unusual way to add to one´s museum collection list.
10 years ago I donated a print to a fundraiser for the Knoxville Kentucky Art Museum. Somehow the photo never got sold. Strange considering in the 3 years prior I had donated about a dozen prints to art fundraisers and all had gotten sold.

Interestingly, two weeks ago I received an email from a former gallery owner from that área who had shown my work is now a volunteer at the museum. She came across the photo and recognized it as mine. As the museum realized that they had not acquired the print and couldn´t figure out how they had gotten it, they believed her to be correct.

Now the museum may be interested in its acquisition as a donation per my suggestion. Their board will meet in a few months and strongly consider accepting it as a gift. Strange process, this art world.

I don't like this one at all.

Geoffrey | 201 comments They´re moles, not rats. Interesting that a contemporary artist should have a 19th century art style. The humor is a bit morbid, isn´t it. So delicious.

It says she's worked on an antique print.

Geoffrey | 201 comments Thanks, Jim and Ruth. It pays to read the fine print.

Geoffrey | 201 comments I, too, use century old images for my collages. Good to recognize a soul sister.
