"Joan and John" by Eric Fischl 2001-2

I chose this picture because it seemed very different and unique. The couple standing there are two writers, Joan Didion and John Dunne, that look like they have been married for a long time. The way they are standing is not close to each other and doesn't show signs of affection for one another. She has her arms crossed guarding her heart, and he has his hands in his pockets showing that he is not protective of her insecurities. Their faces are very stern and non emotional. This painting is an oil on linen.
