The magic of illusion
"Ladies and Plums," a 2012 oil on canvas by Sherrie Wolf, gets to the heart of the meaning in Sir Joshua Reynolds' "The Ladies Waldgrave," which was painted in 1780-81. Wolf's succulent plums suggest the sexual maturity of the sisters. The painting is on display in Wolf's "Historyonics" exhibit at the NAU Art Museum.
