John Curin Bea Arthur Naked 1991 [ +zoom ]
Thanks to a friend with a delightfully warped sense of humor, a tiny picture of Maude in the altogether now adorns my desk.
As David Rimanelli writes in a critical essay about the painting, “Naked, Arthur nevertheless remains composed and dignified, her smile and slightly peaked eyebrows conveying a sense of irony, even amusement.”
This small reproduction pleases and informs me when I need perspective.
