Image of the Day

Paul Cadmus - Playground, 1948
Paul Cadmus has been a steady influence over many artists, including myself.  His clean sense of line, his characterisation and social commentary combine to successfully define a style called Magical Realism.  

I've always loved his almost sinister, barely contained eroticism of the urban and suburban working class from the 30's onwards.  His faces are particularly poignant and in equal measure disturbing and amusing.
