Object Name Painting
Artist DeNiro, Robert
Dimensions H-30.75 W-24 inches

Notes The image depicts a fireplace mantle with objects arranged along its length: bottle(s), plaster cast of nude torso, frame, and other unidentifiable objects on it. Done in thin washes of soft color with paper ground exposed in many places, esp. to describe the figure as well as the mantle. Painting is suggestive rather than specific when representing forms, often using only thin contour lines to imply form.
