Julie Blackmon’s Patio

The Dutch proverb “a Jan Steen household” originated in the 17th century and is used today to refer to a home in disarray, full of rowdy children and boisterous family gatherings. The paintings of Steen, along with those of other Dutch and Flemish genre painters, continue to inspire Julie Blackmon’s fictional narratives about the chaos of family life. Blackmon’s work will be on display with the Catherine Edelman Gallery at the AIPAD Photography Show New York, March 17-20, 2011, at the Park Avenue Armory.- AIPAD.
