Pigment ink prints of a 'Jan Steen Household'

Julie Blackmon's series of luscious pigment ink prints, entitled "Domestic Vacations," are comic and antic photos of a home in glorious chaos. They're apparently inspired by the 17th century Dutch painter Jan Steen. As Nag on the Lake notes, "The Dutch proverb 'a Jan Steen household' originated in the 17th century and is used today to refer to a home in disarray, full of rowdy children and boisterous family gatherings. The paintings of Steen, along with those of other Dutch and Flemish genre painters, helped inspire this body of work."
