This one is interesting, it's by a chap called Francois Legrand (1997) (http://www.loiret.com/cgloiret/sites/artsplastiques/expo4_v6.htm) (I've never heard of him myself).

Look at the mando, the body's like an A-style, but the headstock sure looks like an F-style.

Another great 20sec artwork by me.

Oh, this is an old thread. I found it with 'sculpture' since 'art' is not an allowed term...

Here's a sculpture in front of the Intercontinental Hotel in Prague (where I am tonight).

Who has Scott Tichenor's daughter's "Starry Mandolin"?

Probably worth putting in a link to this (http://www.mandolincafe.com/forum/showthread.php?t=23840) thread, which is the more extensive mandolin artwork thread.

Thanks,

I could not find that thread because you cannot search the word 'art'. It is too short.

George post #79 in the other thread has the same grouping in Sarasota Fl. The artist must have cast more than one.

Grandmainger post #108 on that same thread gives the artist name Moreau and sculptures name Standing mandolin girl to your seventh post here.

Based on this guy's name and where he lived in Italy he could be a distant relative of mine. The mandolin is fairly incidental to the picture, but it's there.

"Fairly incidental" Possibly not. At first blush I see it as a man ready to share his skilled playing to woo the ladies who are at ease.
Just a thought.

Post # 19 reminded me of this. Dunno if it's art, but a nice enough image, I suppose ...

I had a visit from an old friend this summer. She showed my some of her watercolors, flowers and such, that I really liked, so I asked her if she could paint me something for my living room to go with my maroon couch. She said sure, and asked me what to paint, and I said "surprise me with something colorful". I was expecting flowers or an old barn, so I was really surprised when she sent me this watercolor, which now hangs proudly in my living room.
