From our Fine Arts and Americana Collection, a very good and sizeable pastel impressionist piece by Luis Bodes of Alhambra Spain, depicting two couples in a forest landscape. Executed in earthy tones of various greens, browns, rust, straw color, taupe and white, this piece has a natural tranquility to it we felt was universally appealing.
Those who understand painting well, and in particular, those who appreciate the limitations of working in pastel, are familiar with the challenges in achieving a sophisticated aesthetic when working in this medium. But Bodes has done a very fine job here indeed. An opportunity to own a good original pastel painting from an up and coming local Spanish artist, when mere serigraphs / giclees / lithographs / and other mass production prints of all kinds, will set you back even more at large commercial art galleries.
