The Model Maker
1987, 24" x 18", Oil on Canvas
View Enlarged

The inspiration for the The Model Maker originated with the intimate interior scenes of 17th century Dutch artist, Johannes Vermeer and the artist Robert Vanderhorst's fascination with the technology of aviation. In a scene reminiscent of Vermeer's Astronomer (1688), the unexpected placement of an F-86 Sabre jet floating gently above the tabletop creates a quiet tension in the painting and asks how time, technology and the artist coexist.
