C2E2: Fan Commissions Sketch in Art Collage

Doug was immediately interested in doing a commission sketch in a fan's art collage because we recognized it as a very clever "take" of the famous conversation piece, The Tribuna of the Uffizi, by Johan Zoffany.

(It was commissioned by one of Zoffany's Royal patrons, Queen Charlotte; the artist travelled to Italy in 1772 and worked for 5 years on the elaborate masterpiece.  There were 25 paintings featured in The Tribuna of the Uffizi, including 6 by Raphael, 3 by Guido Reni, 2 by Titian and 2 by Rubens.)

I took individual photos of the 4 corners of the art collage - upper left then upper right, lower left (look for Doug's classic bunny profile sketch) then lower right. Enjoy!!!
