A new Nighthawk painting by an artist known only as “Vivian” has raised $10,000 to help pay for its completion.
The painting was made in collaboration with a group of artists, who hope to raise $10 million to complete Vivian’s “The Unfinished Work.”
Vivid and striking, the painting is part of a larger work that also includes a sculpture by the artist and a model of a submarine.
The work is being exhibited at the Smithsonian Institution, the National Maritime Museum of the U.S. and the Royal Dutch Shell Museum in London.
Vivians painting, “Theunfinished work,” is on display at the National Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C.
A new painting, also called “TheUnfinished Work,” by Vivian, was completed in partnership with an artist named Vivian.
Vivian made the piece for a solo show at the 2013 Venice Biennale.
The artist has never been able to complete it.
The painting is on view in the National Gallery of Art until September 2019, when it will be auctioned at the Christie’s in New York.
The museum said in a statement that Vivian “has been at the forefront of visual expression for more than 25 years, inspiring generations of artists and art lovers around the world to create their own work and to express their passions for art and humanity.”
A gallery member said in an email that she was not aware of the auction, but that “the painting is a huge piece of art, and we are thrilled to be working with Vivian on this project.”
The member added that the art is a work of art and is worth a lot of money.
