In the Room the Women Come and Go

In Magritte’s Man Reading a Newspaper… the man is present only in the first of four panels. No disrespect intended, I repeated this “presence/absence” theme while copying Vermeer’s masterpiece, The Art of Painting . The concept is so cinematic I couldn’t resist “plotting” it, with a beginning-middle-and-end.

Oil on Canvas. 4 x 10” x 8”. SOLD.
