Post Series: White Collar’s Neal Caffrey’s Apartment – Art pieces Neal works on

This is my last post of the White Collar series. This post covers the various art pieces displayed throughout the series, supposedly studies and paintings that Neal Caffrey is working on or gains inspiration from.

This was one of my favourites:

After two hours of Googling, I finally find out that it is a painting-in-progress of John Singer Sargent‘s 1911 oil Nonchaloir (Repose), National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

While I do like the final product, the starting-out painting that Neal was working on… I kinda prefer the plainer version. Saying that, I think that is a lady I HAVE to get for my bedroom gallery wall!

This next one is a sweet one. Degas is not one of my favourite painters, but in a show about art crimes, his work has to be featured:

This is, of course, the 1879 Entrance of the Masked Dancers by Edgar Degas, now displayed at Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute at Williamstown, MA, USA.

I truly hope the series has been very informative.

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
