Metro Music III, the Erhu, is the third of three paintings I did showing subway musicians in New York City. In the New York subway system musicians play in passageways and on platforms, and add some pleasure to the frantic rush. This was the passage that connects to the shuttle train between the west side and the east side at 42nd street. The instrument is authentic: the erhu. Metro Music II has been sold.
The painting is 34 inches high by 21 inches wide, acrylic on stretched canvas. It is 36 inches high by 23 inches wide, framed by a shadow frame, which cuts off none of the painting, as other frames do.
The painting is signed and dated on the back. I send a letter of provenance which increases the value of the work. All my artwork is copyrighted by Eleanor Gilpatrick. Copyright is nontransferable through the purchase of artwork.
Hello!! I am a contemporary realist painter of landscapes, people, still lifes, and abstracts that reflect my love of beauty and the way I see the world. Some paintings deal with peace issues; some are about Climate Change; many have edgy compositions. I never sell prints of my artwork. So, see my descriptions to find out about each piece.
