Roodbaaienhemd (Red Baize Shirt)1975 by Jopie Huisman

Baize is a coarse woolen cloth. "The heavy shirt hangs pinned on a line with four pegs There is no horizon or object such as a table so perspective is clearly missing. Huisman has painted the shirt in front of a plain background of many thin layers of dark brown paint. It makes the job a photorealistic icon." http://www.refdag.nl/achtergrond/geschiedenis-cultuur/wat_de_meute_afdankt_legt_jopie_huisman_vast_1_767168
