Marriage of Arnolfini

When I saw Ali and Willa in this pose, I immediately thought of Van Eyck's Marriage of Arnolfini . . .

I love that painting. The detail and the treatment of light are both amazing.

Ali and Willa look like they have been interrupted in the midst of a very serious discussion!

Miss_Yves said...

That's true! Even the colour of the brown coat is similar!

Happy new year!

Deanna said...

Perfect! Let's just hope Willa's not in the family way ;)

Happy New Year to you and yours, Vicki.

Yes, I see the similarity. What a lovely pose. Could they be in love, do you think?

So sweet! Happy New Year to you and those around you...human, canine, or feline. Oh, and bovine.

We call Ali Willa's boyfriend but they are really playmates -- not mates -- both having been put out of the puppy-making business.

It's not quite 9 pm on New Year's Eve here and I'm headed for bed -- laid low by a nasty cold. But the Christmas tree is down and the decorations stored away. Tomorrow is, as Scarlett said, another day and I'll come visiting you all.

Best New Year's wishes to all of you!

I can see why! How interesting. BTW this picture (well, a copy of course) was hung in my school so I remember it well.
