oil on masonite
The painting on the left of the young lady is "The Wrestlers", by George Luks - certainly one of my top-5 favorites in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. It is hung in a small, warm room and faces you dead-on when you walk into the space. It's absolutely breathtaking. The painting the young lady is writing about, the portrait before her, is Robert Henri's "The Irish Girl". I had to wonder why she chose the one over the other for her essay, but beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
This painting can be bought directly from me.
