During my travel around New England,I saw lots of great american art. One of the most celebrated and well known 20th century US painters (illustrators) is Norman Rockwell. He lived most of his adult life in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. In that little town is a fantastic museum in his name, showing lots of his work.
While visiting, and looking at his famous "multiple" self portrait, I saw another visitor standing in front of it, wearing a similar blue shirt.
I saw a photo!
From Wikipedia: Norman Percevel Rockwell (February 3, 1894 – November 8, 1978) was a 20th-century American painter and illustrator. His works enjoy a broad popular appeal in the United States for their reflection of American culture. Rockwell is most famous for the cover illustrations of everyday life scenarios he created for The Saturday Evening Post magazine for more than four decades

En mycket påpaslig bild, du har fått samtliga huvuden i en lång rad här. Dessutom har du lyckats få en mycket fin färgharmoni med alla skjortor som finns i bilden. En bra och riktigt rolig bild!

nice the snapshot with the painter to paint himself and a man to watch him.I like the clarity and the sharpness of the scene as the excellent light and colour management.

I know this famous self portrait, I love it. Your composition is superb, it gives the original painting additional interest that makes a great difference. I like very much how you've introduced the new observer in your frame and how you now have three frames in all. The colour of the shirt matches superbly and you have created two pairs of face to face encounters. The attitude of the real observer is so intriguing as he looks captivated but emotionally dettached. A simple idea but a great picture, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

un artista molto bravo e intuitivo, che ha utilizzato la matita e il fine umorismo in modo meraviglioso.
Molto bravo anche tu che hai composto una splendida immagine usufruendo di un soggetto vestito con gli stessi colori e in posizione simile.

I like this very much, both for its clever use of dominant blue colour and the sense of humour! that would certainly cause a smile. It is cleverly composed of great combination, the main subjects - the artwork and the onlooker both are significantly vital elements and well juxtapositioned. The quality is good that you managed the exposure excellently. The artwork, I feel carries more weight to this quiet attractive picture. Excellent ideas and keen eyes. Well done. Congrats

Hello Goran. Truly an original photo - it's to marvel and smile. But what would be the work of art without the viewer! You have the scene very well captured with your camera - really perfect.
