inspired by...

I am intrigued by the different creations of Seward Johnson. Much of the work scattered through Grounds for Sculpture was of people in familiar activities. Other pieces were inspired by the work of artists from the past. The sculpture shown below, titled "The Nature of Obsession", was inspired by a painting, Vermeer's "Girl with the Pearl Earrings".

The frame hanging in front of the sculpture makes the piece more interesting (to me).
