Dürer Prequel

Recently visited Mom and unearthed my first real art project from a course with Pier Consagra around 1995. Pretty much still the same except I miss Sari and David’s beloved cat Sweetie. And I’ve had to replace the boots a couple of times.

I’m pretty sure that course started me going to the art students league and then everything else.

I had forgotten, when I made Dürer Self Portrait, that I had long ago covered Melencolia I.
