This is the wonderful work of American painter Karin Jurick - newly discovered by me (I know, where have I been?). Couldn't wait to share it. I love these paintings of museum goers and their attitudes, the paintings within paintings. A separate world.
Quote from Karin Jurick's blog regarding the last painting - 'Celebrity Sighting': "I love this story - record crowds have been 'flocking to the Frick Collection' to see the Dutch painter, Carel Fabritius's oil titled 'Goldfinch' - which is the inspiration for the novel by Donna Tartt. It is a wonderful thing when masses of people are interested in art and get to the museums.'
I couldn't agree more.
