"Poor Tax"

Original 22" x 28" Acrylic Painting
Poor Tax
Mr. Monopoly, aka, "Rich Uncle Pennybags," is a classic and ubiquitous Pop Art subject, much like Marilyn Monroe. As such, I thought it appropriate to address him in my own particular way. But unlike many other Pop artists, who tend to use him as some sort of anti-capitalist statement on greed, I have presented him simply as he is shown on one of the Chance Cards, "Poor Tax." Touches of iridescent gold, silver and copper paint are used in the letters and tokens to highlight the monetary nature of the Monopoloy game.
--Randal Huiskens

This is not a print or reproduction, it is an original, hand-painted acrylic painting. This work of art is acrylic paint on archival quality stretched canvas that is 22" in width, 28" in height, with a stretcher depth of 1.5" -- it is fully stretched, with no staples on the side. It is sold unframed and is ready for a suitable framing of your choice. The sides of the painting are painted black for easy and immediate display. The painting is signed on the front by the artist. Please note that colors may vary slightly from the actual painting due to variations in my camera and your monitor.
