| Artist's Notes
It's interesting that the mirror comes in when I work with Picasso -- and a collage technique. In Girl Before a Mirror I attached a gilt cardboard stripping to make the frame within the picture, & in Vermeer Painting with Picasso's Mirror (George Deem later retitled this work Picasso's Mirror) I used a blue plexiglass mirror.
