After the Plague Party

Rachael Grad
Looking back to past artwork to find a way forward out of the COVID-19 pandemic, this artwork was inspired by The Marriage Feast at Cana (1562–1563) by Paolo Veronese and other monumental art that were commissioned after historic and memorable plagues. To form a new composition, I loosely painted from both personal and historical sources. As I painted, I changed the figures, added animals, my children’s toys, and imaginary creatures instead of Renaissance-clad people. Framing available for a fee
