Details

In this amazing original painting by Brazilian artist Rui de Oliveira, a fantastic composition features the fantastic image of a woman floating away from a castle, cradling a baby in her arms as she ascends over a moat towards a red sky. Rui paints in a characteristic, expressionist style, using acrylics alongside engraved designs. This composition tells the traditional French tale of Melusina, a queen who had the lower body of a snake. When her husband discovered her secret, she fled from the castle with their baby. The artist presents this painting, which is used to illustrate the literary account by Ana Maria Machado, titled Melusina, Dama dos Mil Prodígios (Melusina, Lady of One Thousand Prodigies). The illustration arrives in a mat board passe-partout.

Titled Melusina a Fugitiva in Portuguese.
