Renaissance Now and Then
Olga and Aleksey Ivanov, "Porcelain" 14 x 11 Egg Tempera
Frederick Sandys 1829 - 1904 "Oriana" 1861 Oil on Wood
Olga and Aleksey Ivanov are contemporary masters, who have illustrated over 100 children's books. Their expertise spans all genre and mediums, egg tempera, illustrations, oil, pastel and watercolor. Their contemporary take on the Renaissance style of portraits is unique, imaginative and poignant. Methodical reverence is adhered to when preparing the egg tempera, just as it was hundreds of years ago, including the application of gold leafing. Timeless beauty is portrayed in each figurative the Ivanov's paint. Olga and Aleksey's "Porcelain" may be acquired at the American Art Invitational, . The Ivanov Exhibition opens November 2014 at Saks Galleries Denver, Colorado.
Frederick Sandys' "Oriana" may be viewed at The Tate. The subject is taken from an early poem by Tennyson, "The Ballard of Oriana", 1857. In the poem, Oriana stands at the wall of the castle, watching her betrothed in battle. An arrow meant for the King strays, killing her instead. Sandys refers obliquely to one line in the Ballard, "She stood upon the castle wall". Sandys, an English "Pre-Raphaelite" was a painter, illustrator and draftsman of the Victorian era.

Realist Masters, Andrea T. Kemp and Daniel Sprick
The Denver Museum of Art says of Daniel Sprick..."Sprick's recent paintings blur the line between realism and abstraction. His meticulous representation of every day objects and stirring interpretation of the human form provide viewers a new way to look at the world." Daniel has a continuous exhibition at the Denver Art Museum, as well as, a new exhibition
Andrea T. Kemp is the next generation of Realists. A protege of Daniel Sprick, Andrea T. Kemp studied her craft and developed her own twist of realism. Like Sprick, upon first glance, we might consider the work a photograph because of their stunning realistic elements. But further examination reveals a fragmented reality, full of mystery and sometimes suspense. They are anything but a part of our waking world. Andrea's work may be purchased at Saks Galleries. Andrea will serve as one of the invited guest speakers during The Collectors' Salon, . Please join us .
