 Stephen Gjertson

This is one of Gjertson's most familiar paintings. It was commissioned by someone who wanted a small painting with a musical theme using the artist's Victorian sofa and this particular Oriental vase. As in all of Gjertson's work, there is an emphasis on beautiful and expressive line. The painting's tightly-woven design is unified by the interplay of flowing lines between the figures and the sofa.
