Erwin Erwitt 'Paris 1989'
It is a photograph, silver gelatin print.
It is the lower half of what i think is an older mann, with a leash of a dog in his hand, the dog is jumping, it is in black and white.
The coat looks rather large for the man, it seems to be a stolen moment on the streets of Paris.
When I see this image I cannot help but smile, it makes me feel happy, the photograph is mounted in a black frame.
Rug made from wool, its woven
Reds, yellows, golds are the main colours
Intricate flowers all over
Faded parts + ripped threads must be an antique
When I think about this object I imagine it in a grand drawing room or library, perhaps a stately building, surrounded by history, books, artefacts and trinkets.
