The Very Old Man and the Sea

The Very Old Man and the Sea

N0 38486


One of the great pleasures of buying for Watson Kennedy is getting to know contemporary artists and their work. Brooklyn-based artist and writer Julia Felsenthal was introduced to me by my good friend Deborah Needleman. The second I saw her work I was smitten. I was particularly drawn to the smallest of details. Be it a vintage teacup or a swath of fabric, Julia Felsenthal takes great care to add lots of texture and detail. They add an unexpected visual hit that drew me right to them.  I find the pieces dreamlike. This whimsical portrait-in-a-portrait, The Very Old Man and the Sea, is framed in a crisp, new, white frame that sets off the oceanic blues of sea and sky.
