2 nudes + 2 screws + 4 tomatoes + (Gilbert & George)


Background is comprised of a photo of oil barrels and a painting by Ron Cohen. The elderly nude is from Alice Neel's fabulous "Nude Self-Portrait" (1980), which hangs in the National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C. Gilbert & George are a British artist duo whose works often include photos of them in suits & ties.

  1. Lovely! I was lucky enough to see Gilbert & George once in an art gallery in Chelsea when I was a student back in the dark ages. they were doing their infamous "Underneath The Arches" routine on top of a table with their faces painted silver.

  4. I love how everything seems to be emerging from the background, all seemingly orchestrated by a nude Alice Neel.
