Jack Gravin "Tobacco Plant", 2000-2009
Oil Paint
32 x 26 in
Absolutely superb realism. It has the quality of a Renaissance memento mori painting, and shows the painstaking old-school technique as well. But my favorite part of this painting is the quirky appearance of the red brick upon which the skull sits. What is NOT to love about this painting?
