The artwork displayed on the wall in the background is a reproduction of Boy Sitting by the Sea, 1856, by Hippolyte Flandrin (1809-1864). Flandrin applied the style Ingres invented for portraying nude women to a male adolescent. Ingres lived a generation earlier than Flandrin.

Work by Bill Costa (1944-1995)
