Hartley with a Cat

Hartley with a Cat, Oil on canvas. Alice Neel, 1969. Artist’s Estate and Victoria Miro.

While I was drawing together this little conjecture something occurred to me. It was as if I were standing in a gallery observing the painting, mere feet separating my body from the artwork, scents of others lingering in the air, and polite murmurs of conversations bubbling and fizzing within the space of the gallery.
