New Work Added to Live ARC Salon

March 15, 2017

We are pleased to announce that Fritter and Waste by Emanuela De Musis has been added to the 12th International ARC Salon Exhibition.
"Discovering Edmund Tarbell's Mrs. Lovering Hathaway at the MFA Boston, started me thinking about how the gesture of hands can more greatly define the mood of a painting than even the face itself. Mrs. Hathaway stares out blankly. She could be bored or mournful. Her head is straight, her neck stiff, but those hands, primly placed on her lap, have action. Bony fingers pinch, twist and tug nervously at some internal angst. In her Boston proper way, Mrs. Hathaway reminded me of the southern Italian widows in their black mourning shawls, rosaries between their thumbs, the repeated prayers inducing a meditative state. Stoicism, nervous hands, rosaries, these elements became Fritter and Waste, the portrait of a woman with an undefined guilt, releasing her tension by rubbing worry beads."
This work is also available for sale. For inquiries please contact
