The woman on my painting is enjoying a self portrait from 1966 by Andy Warhol. In the latter part of his career, Warhol focused more and more on portraiture. He created portraits of people he admired: Michael Jackson, Grace Jones, Muhammed Ali as well as wealthy socialites he met on the New York social circuit.

By the mid-1960s, Warhol had amassed a huge public following. Engaging in the painting of self-portraits only further cultivated his fame. In time, Warhol’s self-portraits became as famous as the iconic portraits of Marilyn Monroe or Elizabeth Taylor. The artist had himself become a celebrity.

Jackie Kennedy- Painting Of Woman Enjoying Painting Of Jackie Kennedy By Andy Warhol

The woman on my painting is looking at a portrait of Jackie Kennedy by Andy Warhol. In the weeks that followed the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963, Warhol began to collect pictures of the widowed First Lady that flooded the popular press.

He had silkscreens made of his various Jackie images and began to print them on small canvases with blue- and gold-colored grounds. The close-cropped images here reproduces a moment shortly before any shots were fired and soon after.

Love- Man Enjoying Painting By Robert Indiana



Love
painting of a man enjoying painting by Robert Indiana

G. Boersma
acrylic on masonite
20" x 15" or 50,5 x 38 cm
2017

SOLD

Few Pop images are more widely recognized than Indiana's LOVE. Originally designed as a Christmas card commissioned by The Museum of Modern Art in 1965, LOVE has appeared in prints, paintings, sculptures, banners, rings, tapestries, and stamps.

Full of erotic, religious, autobiographical, and political underpinning, LOVE is both accessible and complex in meaning. It was co-opted as an emblem of 1960s idealism. Perhaps that's what my figure is thinking about on this painting.

Drowning Girl- Woman Enjoying Painting By Roy Lichtenstein



Drowning Girl
painting of a woman enjoying painting by Roy Lichtenstein

G. Boersma
acrylic on masonite
36" x 24" or 91,5 x 60 cm
2017

$1200 or €1000 incl. s/h

SOLD

The woman on my painting is enjoying Drowning Girl by Roy Lichtenstein. It is one of the most representative paintings of the pop art movement, and part of the Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection since 1971.

The painting is considered among Lichtenstein's most significant works. Drowning Girl has been described as a "masterpiece of melodrama", and is one of the artist's earliest images depicting women in tragic situations, a theme to which he often returned in the mid-1960s.

The painting shows a teary-eyed woman on a turbulent sea. She is emotionally distressed, seemingly from a romance and my figure is taking it all in. The work is derived from a 1962 DC Comics panel. It is one of several Lichtenstein works that mention a character named Brad who is absent from the picture.

After being locked up in my studio for over a month I'm happy to present my very first large scale painting Kiss!

It measures a whopping 71x47" or 180x120cm. By far the largest hyperrealism painting I did thus far. For years I dreamt of painting something that big and that's why I organised a crowfunding event on Kicktstarter back in may.

Even though I didn't get fully funded with the support of my backers I was finally able to paint a really big one! So thank you all for your support, I really, really appreciate it!!!

Kiss shows a man enjoying a painting entitled The Kiss by Gustav Klimt. He painted it between 1907 and 1908, the highpoint of his so-called Golden Period, when he painted a number of works in a similar gilded style. I always loved this painting and thought it would be a perfect motive for my first large scale painting.

I'm now in process of getting everybody their rewards. If you haven't gotten yours, hold tight, it will get to you soon!

I'm also looking forward to paint more museum pieces (large scale I hope!) and exhibit them together in the nearby future.

Prints of Kiss are still available until aug 8. Just click here to your limited edition print while you still can!

Thanks again and I'll keep you posted!

kind regards, Gerard
