Original oil painting on slimline stretched canvas with edges painted as part of the scene, varnished strung and ready to hang. No frame required.
Latest addition to an ongoing series depicting people reading letters.
Artists like Gabriel Metsu, Pieter de Hooch, and Johannnes Vermeer featured images of figures writing, dictating, receiving, sending & reading letters. Other artists like John William Godward, John Seymour Adams, Thomas Sully & Nina Hardy among many, convey intensely private scenes and emotions, love letters, messages from the heart.
When the long day goes by and I do not see your face,
the old wild restless sorrow steals from its hiding place.
