Del Sarto Canaletto Titian
... has started me on a new series of paintings. The first was The Studio of Jacques Louis David
, a big 70 by 58 inch painting with figures from Corot to Degas sitting about in David's studio. The second painting is The National Gallery, Washington
, with figures from paintings in the collection assembled around the fountain in the rotunda of the National Gallery and with a Fantin-Latour still life up front. I am now working on The Musee D'Orsay, Paris
. It too will be a 70 by 58 inch canvas, the same size as the others, a suitable museum-size format. (George Deem, letter to Patricia Williams, November 29, 1996).
