Watson and the Shark

May 10, 2010 Art No Comments

The center piece of the American Stories: Paintings of Everyday Life, 1765-1915 exhibit, currently being shown at LACMA, on loan from the National Gallery of Art.

Originally painted in 1778 by John Singleton Copley. This painting depicts people coming to the rescue of a young Brook Watson. He was saved, but at the cost of his right leg (if you look closely, you can see blood). Even back then, there were lots of sharks around Cuba.

A couple of fun interpretations by Josh (SHAG) Agle.
