Toothpaste Cannot Go Back In The Tube - Stephen Hall

An Orangutan and a Chihuahua on a melting ice flo 🦍

The Orangutan is holding up a toothpaste tube, not only as a piece of plastic garbage left by humanity, but also as a metaphor for the irreparable damage we are inflicting on our world. Thus the title of the painting.

Have you ever wondered why we see so many portraits in art galleries? 🤔

Up until the invention of photography in the 19th century, commissioning a portrait was the only way to capture a moment. However, after photography was invented, portrait paintings stopped being the only means of depicting a sitter, liberating artists, allowing them to put more emphasis on the artistic value of their portrait paintings instead.

A different type of portrait commission were the so-called "racks", also known as "letter racks", such as the one depicted above. This painting was created by John Frederick Peto, for his neighbour Dr. Bernard Goldberg. The doctor's name can be seen on the postcard and also on the envelope shown on the rack, whilst the photograph depicted is most likely of the doctor himself.
