Everyone knows that the frightfully spectacular Ivan Albright painting of Dorian Gray is permanently on display at the Art Institute of Chicago. What about the beautifully exquisite Henrique Medina version? BEATS ME!!! BUT it was briefly on display from March 11 to March 20, 2015 at Christie's in the Rockefeller Center in NYC...and sold for a whopping $149,000!!!! During that time period, I took the opportunity to see it live. I was so close to the picture that I could fully marvel at all of the soft paint strokes. Plus, it's a real treat seeing all of the details that were essentially missing when watching the 1945 Picture of Dorian Gray movie. I took many photos of the painting itself and also video recorded it. Here's my vid of the painting: If you just want to see the photos (all HD), go here: http://hurdhatfieldluv.tumblr.com/tagged/henrique-medina Enjoy!!!
