Link to this object

Rochester artist Kathy Calderwood brings a pop-culture sensibility to her version of a 19th-century trompe l’oeil (“fool the eye”) painting. William Harnett (1848-1892), cited in the title of her work, was an American artist known for his realistic depictions of still-life elements such as musical instruments, stacks of books, hunting equipment, and sometimes dead game. Here Calderwood provides a plucked Donald Duck, accompanied by an unlucky rabbit, half a banana, a wad of bubble gum, and a newspaper’s comics pages. Calderwood’s modern references are as familiar to modern audiences as Harnett’s original still-life subjects would have been in his era.
