Back by popular demand, we are excited and happy to present GREAT MOMENTS IN ART II.  For 38 years Zenith Gallery has represented Stephen Hansen and his painted paper Mache sculptures. We think of it as our public service to provide humor relief when and where needed. It doesnít matter if you consider yourself an art connoisseur or someone who has never stepped foot into a gallery or museum, Stephen Hansen gets to the audience, and people love his work.

This show takes famous paintings by the masters and adds the Hansen touch. Stephenís iconic comic figures are shown actually painting each great masterís work of art in each charming parody. In fact, Stephen not only creates the sculpture of his figure, engaging in the act of painting the masterpieces, he paints the copy of the painting each comic figure is creating. To be able to sculpt and paint with such talent and creativity and make you laugh, is a real gift and demonstrates extraordinary talent to boot! They say it is far harder to make people laugh than make them cry. Come here and you will laugh so hard you will cry!

Hansenís work has been shown worldwide over the past 40 years. His pieces are in the collections of Embassies around the world, as well as to be found in many museums, commercial buildings, airports and government buildings. Amongst which includes the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission here in Washington (and boy do those folks really need a touch of humor!)
