Detail of “The Deer and the Headlights”

Example of a small painting as a study for larger work, “The Deer and the Headlights,” 2014, oil on linen (12 x 9 1/4 inches). The support was acquired from Ditta Poggi and was handmade in Rome. Mimmo Poggi, the gentleman who owns the store calls them ‘la preparazione dei Balthus.’
Lisa first used these supports in 2003 while her husband, the painter Matvey Levenstein, was at the American Academy in Rome and she was his ‘fellow traveler,’ as the academy calls the spouses.
