Random Art Filter: What is this painting of two women and a tiger?
posted by arniec to media & arts (3 answers total)
My parents bought a condo in Florida furnished. In it was this really odd art print that depicted two women, one topless, lounging, looking somewhat spent. I believe one was smoking a cigarette. With the two women, strangely, was a jungle cat (I believe a tiger) just sitting there, looking very calm, as if it was the women's pet.
The picture looked very 80s, with a type of muted cell shading, almost a Patrick Nagel type of style. So much so, in fact, I thought it might be a Nagel piece (one of his more colored ones, not so monochromatic, no diagonal lines) but "Patrick Nagel tiger" on Google also hasn't been fruitful.
My parents damaged this print and want to find a replacement. I realize that this could be anything from something the previous condo owner designed themselves to a local art fair to possibly a semi-famous piece by a well-known artist, but Google image searches for "Topless women and tiger" have given me hundreds of interesting images, but not the right one.
I was wondering if this print might actually be well-known and, if so, if anyone here at Metafilter can help us find out who did it and if replacements are possible.
