Woman Paints Greenspan Portraits

Twenty-four year-old Erin Crowe has gained national fame in the past couple of days as word has spread about her oil paintings of Alan Greenspan. Cable news networks and major newspapers have been profiling the UVa grad and the surprising popularity of the works, which she created for a local art show a couple of years ago. She told the Post “He has a great face for portraiture. Each painting I did, I wanted to do more…. It’s fascinating, his hands, the wrinkles in his face, his forehead, his combover.” CNN’s got the skinny, or you could just turn on your TV.

  • Alan Greenspan resembles Jean-Paul Sartre.

  • A bunch of the Greenspan paintings were displayed at Hotcakes last fall. I loved them. Striking colors. Oversized closeups. I wanted to buy one as a gift, but the artist never responded to my emails. She’s probably better off; I reckon the publicity she’s getting now will raise the value of her work.
