Man in a Boat (detail)

Ron Mueck


The work was created as part of Mueck's time as artist in residence at the National Gallery, London, in 2000, where he was invited to seek inspiration from the old masters. (In Man in a Boat, for example, Mueck focussed on an overlooked detail of a tiny ship in Velazquez's Immaculate Conception).
