This artist has a sensitivity in his work, perhaps a hint of poignant thoughts in his subject. He has you asking about the subject. Why is she eating along? Why such a small amount that she will partake on the floor? I love art that makes me question. Eternod's artwork does that for me. He is gaining recognition in the United States. He had reached a level of popularity in Switzerland and in other parts of Europe. If you love
this as I do, it can be the one focal point in a room due to its size and feeling. His high reported price (from 2016) is over $4,200.00.
