The Lake in Central Park
(Dedicated to Brenda (Worldcitizen))

Some of you appreciated the poses of the museum visitors in my previous posts. Others stated that they would have liked to see more of the paintings. For those, today a study of the painting “The Lake in Central Park: A Late Afternoon in Early June, 2017” of Slone Roberts. This painting was also part of the exhibition “The American Dream” in the Drents Museum in Assen.

◙ The main picture is the introduction of the painting showing two persons admiring and taking pictures of the artwork.
◙ The first workshop shows a man studying this large realistic painting. He was also taking close-up pictures, as you can see in the second workshop.
◙ The second workshop is a diptych with an overall view of the painting on the right side and artist impression with the man from workshop 1 taking a detail-picture, on the left side.

Stone Roberts about the painting:
“Central Park was a subject that kept recurring - and over the months I explored several sites before I happened upon this rock face hidden in the park’s Ramble. It is a place where people come to sit, picnic, relax and even fish. It’s a fascinating and amusing sight to see all the boaters ply their skills (or, more typically, their lack of them) on the shallow waters od the Lake. Each boat is occupied by unique examples of people who live in the city and those who visit. I felt that this was a place to contemplate the city at its leisure – so different from most urban places there where life is lived at frenetic places.”

About Stone Roberts
Known for: figurative, interior, still-life, animal
Stone Roberts is a figurative painter whose works appear in public and private collections throughout the United States and Europe. He was born in Asheville, North Carolina in 1951. He lives in New York City and Stonington, Connecticut.
A painter in the style of the Old Masters, Stone Roberts creates figure, genre, and interior paintings of large-scale depictions of modern-day persons in settings with antiquities. The impression is of reality and incongruity, meaning the style of painting is realistic but the setting is improbable. (website Askart)

I add the dark frame to the picture to give the posts a screen format of 1920x1080 pixels
The idea is that, if you use the links in the text, you have a full screen image of the picture with the photo in the centre of a dark screen.
This works with the browsers and screens I use, but I’m not sure that everybody will have the same result.
