The Models' Greatgrandchildren

Walking through the New Britain Museum of American Art again.


Mary is NBMAA's director of education.  The artist and teacher Robert Henri painted the model at his home in Madrid, where his American students were painting during the summer.


John is from North Carolina.  His wife and he are on vacation and 
had nothing better to do than to find a museum.


Deanna -- a student -- and a friend visited the museum.  She is with Blanch Sully, daughter
of the artist Thomas Sully.  Deanna and her friend are the kind of visitors museums love.
They took their time, looked carefully at the works they liked and discussed them at length. h

Sorry about the glare.  I tried several different approaches but couldn't avoid it
in the photography nor get rid of it in the editing.

Wow... nice and smart way to photograph people along side a painting.

I really like the way you made the portraits, and how they have the paintings in the backdrop.

Is it quite by chance that your portrait subjects look a little like the paintings they are paired with Jack, especially the first and last?

I like how you posed these portraits. Well done! You succeeded in finding the right people with the right portraits.
