ORIGINAL PAINTING AVAILABLE — $200

The Story of "Diana"

If you have visited the Philadelphia Museum of Art you have definitely seen “Diana.”

PMA tells the history of Diana as follows:

Diana has reigned as the goddess of the Museum’s Great Stair Hall ever since 1932!

Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the most celebrated American sculptor of his day, created “Diana” as a weathervane for the tower of the first Madison Square Garden in New York in 1893. Madison Square Garden was demolished in 1925 and the Philadelphia Museum of Art adopted the sculpture in 1932. 

As a long-time member of the PMA, I especially appreciate Diana’s presence while enjoying live music, snacks and drinks on Friday evenings relaxing on the stairs for the Museum's “Art after Five” program.

This is my second painting celebrating famous art. I painted “Relaxing with Rothko,” from a visit to the Tate Modern in London. Visiting art museums has always been a passion of mine, so, every once in awhile I feel driven to pay homage!

I hope you enjoy "Diana on the Stairs" as much as I enjoyed creating it.The Original Painting size is 8x8 Inches on canvas panel. I use the highest quality artist acrylic paint. The painting has been varnished to protect from dust, UV rays and yellowing. THE ORIGINAL PAINTING ARRIVES AT YOUR HOME FRAMED AND READY TO HANG.
