House- Art Within Art Painting Edward Hopper In Museum Kunsthal Rotterdam

G. Boersma
acrylics on masonite
13.8" x 11.6" or 35 x 29,5 cm

On todays painting you see 2 figures looking at Italian Quarter, Gloucester by Edward Hopper from 1912 as seen in Kunsthal Rotterdam were the paintings were shown on loan from the Whitney earlier this year. I like how the painting almost looks like a window and gives you this view to another world behind the yellowish wall. As a longtime fan of Hoppers work it's just great to have him included in my ongoing series about people admiring art in museums. The painting on the left is by Hopper as well.

In other news I started to work on a large auctionhouse painting. Don't want to tell you too much about it yet, but it's situated at Christie's and shows workers taking telephone bids. The painting is 35.6" x 27.6" or 90,3 x 70 cm in size so it takes sometime to complete. If I'm not posting for a while you know why.

Art Chicago is coming up by the end of this month. As always I'm represented by Amstel Gallery, it's going to be a great show and I'm really looking forward to it! More info soon!

kind regards, Gerard
