I ran across a few paintings by the painter Maximilian Vanka(1890-1963) recently. They were really nice compositions and odd takes on color and perspective. I can't find much on him online but this painting above is a nice example. It's echo of the teapot in the painting pinned to the wall behind the painted teapot references dimensionality in such a 2015 meta, ironic sort of playfulness. I think he has some work in Pittsburgh, I'd really like to see more.
