The Kindness of Strangers

First, here's a great post on caricature and his lecture at SCAD by Steve Brodner.


Last week I got an email from a collector in Long Island.

He recently purchased a lot of Fred Mogubgub paintings and invited me to see them.

This portrait is about two feet by three feet.  It's covered in a glaze which gives it the look of a Byzantine icon -also preserving the paint to the point you can spill grape juice on it with little effect.

Also this painting, which needs a little repair.

A nude boy (or is he "naked" if he's wearing a jockey's cap?) conversing with two mermaids.

The front is titled "Jockey Club".

But the back is labeled "Still Pond" and priced at $3500.
