For some reason I was thinking about Bea Arthur this morning as I was driving to work. And thinking about Bea Arthur made me remember this hilarious portrait John Currin (American, b. 1962 - ) painted of her:
John Currin, Bea Arthur Naked, 1991
I'm not sure if I would want John Currin to paint a portrait of ME, but I like his work. Here are some of his other portraits:
John Currin, Ms. Omni, 1993, oil on canvas, 48" x 38"
John Currin, The Bra Shop, 1997, oil on canvas, 48" x 38"
