Alfonso Michel

The May 2009 issue of Art & Antiques was worth a look for a few articles of great interest to me: one on trompe l'oeil painting, one on Will Barnet, and another on Richard Lindner. And, thanks to Edward Gomez's article "More Than Murals: The Story of Mexican Modernism..." I have been introduced to the paintings of Alfonso Michel.

One painting in the article really set me off: Naturaleza Muerte (Still Life). You can see a nice image of it (it's the last one on the page), and that of twenty-eight others by Michel online at the Andres Blaisten Museum.
