Below is an Essence Portrait of Rembrandt created according to the tenets of radically new Twenty-first century Post Conceptual and Ungraven Image Art theory by me, Judy Rey Wasserman.

Months ago, when I learned of ArtHamptons (ironically through a link at artnet.com to a small banner ad), and I saw the roster on then signed galleries, I thought that having a cornucopia of museum quality art residing in the Hamptons seemed like a wonderful addition to my own birthday weekend.
