EM-Drabbles – One Hundred & Ten

Minnesota Bray made a living creating reproductions ‘in the style of’ famous artists. But at the back of her studio she kept pictures she painted for herself in her own style. Occasionally someone purchasing a ‘Caravaggio’ or a ‘Monet’ would ask to see her works and she would show them, with reluctance, because they were always spurned.

In her later years she finally found the courage to display her own art and, to her surprise, became quite popular. The height of her joy though, was seeing an advertisement for a young artist offering artwork ‘in the style of Minnesota Bray’.
