Artist Profile: Vonn Sumner

19 Aug

A little known tidbit about Vonn Sumner’s work is that the hats worn by many of the figures in his compositions are first hand constructed by the artist.

These hats are referenced directly from art history, such as the Italian Reniassance work  The Journey of the Magi (1495).
