It’s taken me a long time to finally post these images! Last summer, I spent an incredible morning studying several key J.C. Leyendecker Saturday Evening Post paintings up close and in person, and was able to take the following detail shots of a few of them. I’ll keep the owner’s identity anonymous to preserve privacy, and will just state that it was a incredible pleasure to have had this wonderful opportunity. Leyendecker is one of my all-time favorite artists, and a huge influence on my own work, and so I’m grateful to have been able to take these shots in order to continue to study his brushwork. Click on the images to see even larger versions, where you can revel in every detail of the canvas texture and each brushstroke. Enjoy!
