Precisionist artist Francis Human Criss painted this tender portrait of ‘Alma Sewing’ in 1935. Compositionally and in mood, does anyone else also see a strong affinity to Vermeer?This is part of a worthwhile exhibit on American workers at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC.
DC abstract artist Gretchen Whitney gave me a crash course in abstracting from reality. So we used my #oilpastel #drawing (see previous post) as a starting point and worked in some conte crayon and pencil to collaborate on this. Which do you like more?
