Crowing Proclaimed, no Crow Eaten
The tiny image above is the largest I could find showing the American Artist magazine cover for its June 2012 issue.
The image is of a study or uncompleted painting in the Joaquin Sorolla museum in Madrid. I stumbled across it while visiting in October 2010, photographed it, and included photos such as the one below in this post.
I took the photo because it was the only example I knew of showing his way of blocking in his subject material.
That post was linked by Charley Parker's Lines and Colors blog, leading to a significant rise in readership here.
So far as I'm aware [pats self on back], my image was the first of Sorolla's painting to appear on the Internet.
