About the Artwork

This vibrant and expressive portrait of Marilyn Monroe is both seductive and personal. This is the first time McAfee has painted Monroe’s portrait, even though he is known for painting major cultural figures through his professional career. This painting is vibrant and personal and captures the likeness of one of the world’s most recognized people in American history.

About the artist

“In my capacity as a painter based in Evergreen, Colorado, I specialize in the human form and the expressive potential of paint. The core of my work is founded on the creation of movement and energy through thick, gestural brushstrokes. Beyond delving into the psychological aspects of portraiture, my paintings often explore themes of identity, memory, and emotion.

In the pursuit of my craft, I draw inspiration from a diverse array of artists, such as Francis Bacon, Willem de Kooning, and Lucian Freud, whose exceptional abilities in capturing the human condition in a raw and visceral way have greatly influenced my approach. Additionally, I frequently incorporate elements of the natural world, especially landscapes, into my paintings.

My objective as an artist is to capture and immortalize the unique narratives of individuals through portraiture. I firmly believe that every person has a story to share, and I strive to pay homage to their experiences by producing tangible memories.

Proof of Provenance

A Proof of Provenance is an official document that establishes the genuine nature of an artwork. Issued by a credible authority, this may be signed directly by the creator, the gallery representing the creator, or the specialist who collaborated with the artist. In cases of traded artworks, authenticated bodies or designated foundations may issue such certifications.

These documents are comprehensive, usually detailing the artist’s name, specifics of the artwork (including title, creation date, materials used, size), and ideally, an image of the art piece itself.
