Coni Minneci , Judith Leyster (1609-1660), 2003-2006; oil on panel, 9 x 12 inches; Courtesy of the Artist
Little known Dutch painter, her work has often been confused with Frans Hals. Her amusing images prompted me to have some fun the veggies and her pear. Note: JL not FH!
"Burchfield has exacted a quality that we may call poetic, romantic, lyric, or what you will. By sympathy with the particular, he has made it epic and universal." - Edward Hopper, who was friends with Burchfield (both were represented by the Frank K.M. Rehn Galleries in New York).
