Robin Tewes (American, b. 1950). Oil on panel diptych titled "The Art of Happiness 1 and 2," 2005.
One panel depicts a man seated at his desk surrounded by crumpled pieces of paper. Words are inscribed into the chartreuse wall in the background. An abstract painting of a nude woman hangs on the wall. In the other panel, the man has left, leaving a still-smoking cigar. The artwork has changed to depict a realistic version of the painting on the wall. Words are still haphazardly written on the wall in the background including the phrase "Fax You I Quit." Each panel is titled, signed, and dated along the verso. Each with a label from Adam Baumgold Gallery, New York, affixed along the verso. The verso of the first panel is filled with pencil inscriptions from the artist.

Provenance: Adam Baumgold Gallery, New York; Private Minnesota collection.

Height: 20 in x width: 18 in.
