Ethel Scull 36 Times, 1963, was Andy Warhol's first commissioned portrait.
Very interesting short article about the Warhol portrait of Ethel Scull, the wife of taxi mogul Robert Schull, by Ann Landi for ARTnews. Bitter divorce, joint custody, and an incredible work of art. I'm heading over to see the painting tomorrow!

Now you see it: "I Bari (The Cardsharps)", around 1594-95, out of sight for nearly a century and now at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth
My mini summer vacation spree has come to an end, I've spent the last few weeks traveling between New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. It was a wonderful time to see my whole family, go to museums (obviously) and now I have officially moved to the great island of Manhattan. This transition period has been slow but it is finally complete!!
I am posting a wonderful article today on Michelangelo Merisi, or Caravaggio as you probably know him, hope you will enjoy it. My artwork posts with begin again once I have unpacked my art library from boxes! I know that Caravaggio has been the most covered artist on this blog so far but what can I say? I'm a sucker for the bad boys... This article covers the interesting topic of trends and fads in the art world and how art history can be shaped by the taste of both the larger public but also a few opinionated scholars.
