Guatemalan Still Life Painting of Flowers in a Blue Vase, "Garden Flowers"
"I found my inspiration for this painting in the joy that comes with having flowers at home. I remember these blossoming in my parents' garden when I was a child, as well as that of my friends. These flowers left a mark in our childhood," says Juan Henry Mendez fondly. He paints this still life with oils and acrylics in a vivid and intense palette of colors.
Titled "Flores del jardin" in Spanish.
Signed Realist Painting of a Woman Beneath a Tree from India, "Forest Beauty"$137.99
Sensual in her elegance, a woman wears a shawl around her body as the wind teases her hair in front of her face. Indian artist Sonu Chopra paints this scene in a realist style, depicting his subject beneath the pink floral branches of a tree. This painting arrives in a mat board passe-partout.
The Realist Painting
While romanticism appeals to the emotions, realism was a reaction against its drama. Begun in France in the 1850s, realism grew with the introduction of photography. The realist painting discovers beauty in everyday life, without embellishment and undistorted by personal bias. Realist painters strive for truth and accuracy.
A master of realism, Carlos Morales depicts the people and architecture of Lima. His children's portraits are especially poignant. Azorin achieves a super-realism in his masterful religious paintings while Phomin Singkwang and Panich capture the peace of Thai landscapes. Umnuay's reverent still life paintings depict such everyday scenes as a cluster of bananas or a bowl of water in Northern Thai homes. Brazilian artist Eduardo Marques depicts women with astonishing clarity, his people and portraits faithful as a photograph.
These are just a few of the artists present in Novica's Realist Painting Gallery. We hope you enjoy exploring it!
