I never have cared for "La Pia," There's something disturbing about the size, length, and angle, of the neck. When I worked there I called it "The Painting of the Woman with the Broken Neck."
George, I loved that painting and now you've ruined it for me. Never noticed the neck before. ;-(
This is one of my favorite paintings. I was just thinking about her the other day as it's been awhile since I've paid her a visit. It's nice to hear she'll be out on display where more people will have an opportunity to see and appreciate her. We're very lucky to have this painting here in Lawrence.
Bring back Mr. and Mrs. Shopper!!!
Good memory! Mr. and Mrs. Shopper by Duane Hanson (the artist who created the famed Museum Guard sculpture at the Nelson-Atkins in Kansas City) was on loan to the Spencer Museum from the late 70s through the early 80s. We’re glad you enjoyed it while it was here on loan to us.
One added note: the actual title of the work mentioned in the comment above is Shoppers, or Couple Shopping. Thanks again for remembering!
Any idea where the couple resides these days?
We love your commitment to reconnecting with Shoppers, but because the object is part of a private collection, we cannot be sure of its whereabouts. If you track it down, please let us know!
