NewYorkNewYork




This ran in last weeks issue of the New Yorker. A different approach as i was asked to do a portrait of Philippe de Montebello as he is narrating the Saint-SaĆ«ns’s "Carnival of the Animals" at the Metropolitan Museum in New York.

A little background info, Philippe de Montebello has been the director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York for 31 years.. So I found it surprising/honored to get contacted by the Met to buy a print so that they could present it to Mr. Montebello. I hope he enjoys it.




And another small letters piece for Kim at the NY Times.
