Its quirky sense of humor and mysterious narrative caught her eye. Intern Sarah Gerin says: “Sunny Ducks’ intrigue lies in its ambiguity. It is kind and comforting, yet still forlorn and remote. In the painting, there is no context for what interaction is taking place, where it is taking place, or even its significance. With its enigmatic imagery and striking sense of both kindness and solitude, this scene reveals a clever and playful approach to the universal themes of isolation, alienation, and human relationships.” [Label text from It Came From the Vault exhibition, 2013]", "Dedication" : "Gift of William Whiting and the Arthur Allen family in memory of Daniel Allen", "Copyright_Type" : "Under Copyright", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "Painting", "Creation_Place2" : "American", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/75.12_A1.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/75.12_A1.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/75.12_A1.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/75.12_A1.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "16336", "Image_Type" : "digital image", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] }, ] }
