We don’t have to keep a lid on this latest visual proposition by the once suspect paintbrush of a one John Myatt; the acclaimed contemporary artist with a penchant for interpreting the old masters. Only forgetting to tell anyone it’s his version. Naughty, naughty.
All that’s behind him as we feast our eyes on his newest composition, entitled, ‘Children Frightened by a Spider In the Style of Miro’, as flagged up here.
This limited edition piece is both individually numbered and signed by Myatt (in all the legal places) and witnesses his unique take on, well, a child evidentally scared by the presence of a spider.
Or to be precise, what Joan Miro would have made of the same scenario, illustratively if he’d been presented with the brief.
