Fiction, a Gallery Show of Wonderfully Subtle and Strange Portraits of Literary Characters



Modern Eden is showcasing the work of a number of artists all working off of the same idea: painted portraits of fictional characters old and new, from all genres. The portraits are lovely, but since they’re original art, you’ll be reaching deep to get one for yourself. Better to just gaze at them through the internet and sigh longingly. We’ve posted a few here, but there are more than two dozen at Modern Eden’s site.
