John Currin: The Dogwood Thieves

1

Description

In 2004, John Currin (born 1962) began a large-scale painting that would eventually be titled The Dogwood Thieves. Starting with a photograph from a magazine advertisement, he altered the painting several dozen times of the course of six years until he was satisfied with the composition. This publication is based on a lecture given by Currin in August 2010 at the Arcadia Summer Arts Program.
