Munch noticed


Email from Rob Matthews

Speaking of no art going unnoticed, the Munch show [at the Philadelphia Museum of Art] is worth checking out if for nothing else than to see the beautiful big ol’ frame they put on the “Mermaid” painting. We also liked looking at his use of the lozenge shape he worked out to represent the moonlight reflected in water (image, “Mermaid,” oil on canvas, 39 1/2 x 126 inches).

–Artist Rob Matthews shows at Gallery Joe and as a duster at the PMA, has plenty of time to notice the art
