Anna Von Mertens

Anna Von Mertens’ portraits are made from hand dyed, hand stitched cotton and capture the auras of (from top to bottom) Whistler’s Mother. Her Self Portrait, Mona Lisa, and The Duke and Duchess of Urbino. I originally went to her website to look at her hand stitched textile paintings of stars (look at them here) but I was more fascinated with these.

The Outsider Art Fair is happening in New York this weekend. I wish I could be there!
