The last time I was at the National Gallery in Washington I saw a poster of this painting in a gift shop, but didn't get it because I hadn't actually seen the painting before, I had a lot of miles in a crowded car to travel, and I was with my mother, who hates to see me spend money, and with my dad, who thinks I have too much stuff cluttering up my house already…but look! It's a painting of cake! and it would be lovely in my kitchen!
I think I bought a book of postcards of his work at a different gallery. I wonder where they are?
