Picnic at Nice: For Claude and Francis
acrylic, pencil and collage on custom wood frame
24" (high) x 48"

When we picnicked with our children on beaches in France, we always set out this red-and-white checked tablecloth. The beach at Nice was all rocks... beautiful, but a surprise. This is for both Claude (Monet), for his lilies, and Francis (Bacon) for the white forms that stand in for figures.
