Ugo Mochi

Blogroll Me!
In Yesterday's blog I featured a Ugo Mochi table. Here he is standing in front of a painting he posed for, painted by artist Alton S. Toby (also pictured).
It is quite common for artists to pose for one another. Back when I was a struggling artist I posed for a Denison University beginning drawing class. The job paid $18 an hour, perhaps the most money I ever made per hour in this lifetime. Mochi portrays the great violin maker Antonio Strativari in this painting. The two men were friends.

I love this article! It has prompted me to research Mochi and the other artist!

The table looks lovely.
