I have loved the work of Fairfield Porter for years, what little of it I've been able to see first hand. For whatever reason, he seems not to be considered top drawer -- but I would put him with the likes of Vuillard and Bonnard with his unerring skill in representing figures in interiors.
I feel like I know this room and I know this boy. Porter's depiction of familiarity is unerring, and what remarkable subtlety of color in a picture that is essentially red and green. As I type this I sit at a table similarly arranged, with all essential items around me. The boy in the painting has arranged a room within the room, with borders as tangible as walls.
And I love the raven painting, wallpaper, and almost humorously recognizable objects -- the green shaded library lamp, the ebonized chair. Welcome home.
PS. I checked out the Wikipedia entry on Porter, and the writer also compares his work to Vuillard and Bonnard; I guess I wasn't getting that from nowhere. Well I never.
