This piece is inspired by Baltimore’s historic Mount Royal Tavern. Above the now defunct fireplace, the painting by Richard Ireland boasts voluptuous figures painted in the classical style. The painting had been damaged by decades of smoke but I knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted to make something out of it!
Years later, I discovered that my own godfather was in the classroom at Maryland Institute College of Art, when Ireland painted this piece. If that’s not enough Smalltimore history for you, then you should buy this piece because it’s beautiful, one of a kind, and the first with a square frame.
