  • Obese old woman with highly detailed fat rendered in mostly gray tones

    Comment


    • Saw a drawing/print (I don't know how to classify it) in the de Young, San Francisco Art museum, gallery 17. I believe it is by a 20th century American contemporary artist, although I am not entirely sure if it was American. The words "I will always be good" were written over and over again across the page in small letters. The words "EARLY BIRD" were written in the top right corner. Across the majority of the page an outline of a sink was drawn in black, with a crudely drawn spider (imagine a 4 year old drawing a spider). In pencil, there was something that looked like a leaderboard and had numbers on it, and it had something to do with nations. There was a crudely drawn penis with the words "the pain of circumcision is unnecessary" in very faint letters. Somewhere else it said something about how all animals have the same heartbeat. In the bottom right corner it said something about a river ending.

        • My first thought was Jack Vettriano, who is extremely popular and does retro works that sound like this. And it turns out it's probably The Drifter by Jack Vettrano.

          • I have a childhood memory of a Victorian (?) painting...realistic...boy and pony in meadow .Boy offering pony an apple with his right hand while he holds a bridle behind his back in the other hand. The boy had a lace collar and breeches (?). I would dearly love to see this again. Can anyone help me ?

                Is it Jenny Saville?
