Heeee Post #607 - David Stanely Aponte - Lancaster, Pennsylvania - USA

Recognize this painting? Maybe not. This painting was done by the accomplished artist Osvaldo Romberg whose long career often explored masterworks from historical art. In this case he photographed Vincent van Gogh's self portraits (24 of them) and painted over the images. Although his brushstrokes often mimic Vincent's, the reworkings differ greatly in size (stretching and dislocations) from the originals and unusual elements and detail are added - distorting the images.
Thank you David, for sending this in to the Affair. I like your carved monogram stamping and the interesting quote from McLuhan as well. It is important to remember and be able to recognize artists works, such as Romberg.
