Tiny moments : the life of genre painting
November 15 – December 31, 2020

Today, most artists would consider painting people in their everyday life, common and perhaps even schmaltzy.  But, during the 19th- and early 20th-century, portraying our fellow citizens’ daily routines held a quiet majesty.  In Tiny moments : the life of genre painting, David Smernoff gallery presents twenty works, most small cabinet works exclusively on Artsy.net and davidsmernoff.com.
