In the second and final (or perhaps not, who knows?) installment in this series, UT’s Ewing Gallery presented a random exhibit of items from their collection again. Shall we wander aimlessly together?
Flemish tapestry, perhaps 16th or 17th century, likely the latter because of the landscape. I happen to like tapestry; my first introduction was the Bayeux Tapestry, depicting the Norman conquest of England, though I did not come close to examining each of its 70 meters. A favorite, however is the Unicorn tapestries at the Cloisters.
Something based on something by Rubens. That’s all we learned.
This belongs in our great room, nearby in a complimentary spot to our repro Vermeer. The artist is Dutch and probably leaned on the masters for inspiration.
Not whom you think. A little bit Rembrandt and a teeny bit Vermeer, agreed, but entirely The Potato Peeler by Jakob Smits, a Belgian artist.
Again, not whom you might think. Another Jakob Smits. Definitely leaned on the masters.
We turned a corner, and Whoa! a 70s creation by a Swedish artist. Sounds about right.
Totally loved this. Totally surprised that it’s a Picasso lithograph from 1952. Picasso named his daughter Paloma, the Latin word for “Dove” and by extension, “Peace.” Now you know, too.
You don’t need me telling you who painted this silkscreen, but here is a hint: it’s From Fertility Suite.
This should be in our Master Bedroom; the colors are perfect. It’s a gorgeous Dali.
An easy layup for readers of the Saturday Evening Post. (Or, just look at the signature on the bottom. 🤣)
An even easier layup.
The extra credit to end this game. One hint: would be most welcome in the Danubiana Meulensteen, hands down.
