Elizabeth de Béthune Fine Art
Tom in Eames Chair
2010
oil with collage on canvas
36" x 36"
A portrait of my brother-in-law, in the house that he and my sister have renovated, surrounded by the books that they love. Tom is a great talker and storyteller. The drawn elements make a transition between the illusionistic portrait space and the patterned ground and border. The slight surface texture is due to a collage layer of sewing pattern which acted as a ground for the painting.
"Agnes on Headstand Bench" is the companion piece to this.
