I love this painting by Anton's a quotation of a famous work by Courbet called "Patron Greets Genius". Courbet was famously narcissistic....Anyways, Anton Henning is a fun painter. Looking at his work doesn't make you think much, but it makes you feel good. It makes me wan't to paint in bright, cheery sun-drenched hues. He's probably a really happy guy, and that comes across. But who all could be a performance...maybe he's an irritating asshole. Does it matter?...Not really. I wan't to do some paintings based on populating his luxurious modern interiors with wierd noirish sci-fi that would be cool.
