Adrienne Clarkson Dish

Joanne Tod

Adrienne Clarkson (2011), a frontal portrait of a smiling Clarkson with lilies and maple leafs around her, was inspired by an early 16th-century Italian plate with the profile of a dour, bejeweled princess. The parallel between the late Renaissance Italian aristocracy and Canadian media figures is amusing enough, but Tod takes the craft in these pieces seriously: the portrait is painted with a classical delicacy.

Via.
