I got a comment about my painting “Three Women”. http://blog.mariko-irie.com/2013/03/three-women/
“Nice painting, but I think it is not Eakins. I searched the museum’s collection and came up with two paintings by Thomas Eakins, but not this one.
I would guess a more recent artist, probably from California.”
And then I got more curious to know the Artist and Title of he painting inside of my painting. So I e-mailed to The San Diego Museum of Art.
I got a response:
Here is the title of the painting you were requested:
The Nude Dancer (Labailarina desnuda)
Oil on canvas
59 1/2″ x 59″
This piece was featured in the Modern Mexican Painting exhibit two years back.
Visitor Relations Associate
