Go on Mark....throw us a bone to chase...Initials? Nationality? er...Name?
I'm really scratching my head on this one and I'm too pretty to go bald.

Can't argue with that...but I'm still going to chase up your Scandanavian instincts.

Dying Maiden is the title, it was a series of five life size portraits.

Shameless plug: If you like this game, join us in the Art History forum, where we have running "mm" ("mystery masterpiece") threads.

Grant Wood, self portrait

OH YEAH

Thanks to Darci (my girlfriend) who guessed it, and told me not to take credit for it.

Re: Name that Painting! *** July 2005

Now... before any nay-sayers arise... i consider brushed ink, especially when on canvas, to be categorized as painting.

This image, comes with a hint right off the bat.
I wanted to follow the self portrait (that's obvious, this is not your hint) theme, but also wanted to showcase one of this artist's paintings. My favorite of his self portraits however, was not done in paint.
So along with it i show you one of his oil paintings. And that is your first hint.
