Portrait of Al Honig

2011

29 inches x 34 inches, pigment and acrylic on canvas

This portrait of sculptor Al Honig was created as part of my portrayal of artist Vincent van Gogh at the de Young Museum's Friday Night Cultural Encounter Soirées in celebration of the exhibition Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cezanne and Beyond: Post-Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musée d'Orsay. Also see Sunflowers, and Joe Talmadge, two other paintings that were created as part of the van Gogh tableau vivant portrayal, and Dance Rehearsal, a painting created as part of my Edgar Degas tableau vivant portrayal. Here are some scenes (below) from the Friday Night Soirée at the de Young on January 14th, 2011. The photos shown here are by Gil Rego, Jr., taken for the the SF Weekly, unless otherwise stated.

 

Myself as van Gogh, Dede Wilsey, President of the Board of Trustees of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Peggy as Berthe Morisot and John Buchanan, Director of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Mr. Buchanan sadly passed away on December 30, 2011.He achieved great things at the de Young and Legion of Honor Museums and made a significant contribution to the cultural richness of the San Francisco Bay Area. He will be sorely missed. Condolences to his family.
