Ombretta ~ Angelo Basso
Angelo Basso was revered in both the United States and his home country of Italy for his masterful work in the Baroque revival. His marriage of contemporary sculpture with the grace and flowing movement of traditional Baroque is a testament to his technical mastery, which itself is all the more impressive considering Basso was self-taught. His works are exhibited internationally, including in the Vatican Museum. Below is Basso’s Ombretta.
Marie qui se Cherche ~ Philippe Bertho
Philippe Bertho burst onto the pop art scene in the ’90s and has carved a niche with his own unique modern interpretation of classical styles. His works are engaging and almost interactive, as much a puzzle as they are painting, an aspect that the artist himself has commented on. “Through my art, I create a visual story that only the viewer can complete by using their intellect, imagination and sense of humor.” Below is Bertho’s Marie qui se Cherche, or Marie Looking for Herself.
