"Thanks to art, instead of seeing a single world, our own, we see it multiply until we have before us as many worlds as there are original artists."
So glad you're feeling better.I enjoy the composition, too. It could be quite boring, actually, except for that bit of tension created by implying that an egg just might be in the process of rolling off the table. It made me smile.
I've been looking at Bailey again since the White House selected two "similar" ("reminiscent"?) still lifes by Morandi to hang during the Obamas' tenure. When I first saw Bailey's work, I wondered what made them more than just really good studies. But then I learned about how he subtly teases with perspective (some of the shelves that hold his bowls and bottles are deceptively shallow, for instance). Certainly, they are beautiful to look at. Now I wonder about what distinguished Morandi's bottles, stylistically.
