Art Nouveau Caly Lilies
Dee Van Houten
Painting - Gouache
The Cala Lily painting was created to be hung with the Art Nouveau Lily painting. (It also looks beautiful just on its own). The jewel-like colors and lovely details in the translucent skin of the woman in this Art Nouveau Cala Lily painting appears soft and delicate. She has a mesmerizing look in her crystal blue/green eyes and you wonder what she is thinking. It is not a look of sadness, but as though she is thinking of someone from another time or place.
Her head is completely wrapped in a deep teal colored turban with cala lilies tied to one side of it. The shoulder wrap she is wearing bares her soft, creamy shoulders. Her lips are full and pouty as she holds a bouquet of cala lilies, which have a very delicate, almost vulnerable look to them.
In the two upper corners you will see cala lilies gently painted within the space behind the peach colored, arched shaped background. On each side and at the bottom of the painting are hand-painted borders of tiny, delicate cala liles.
The Art Nouveau style is characterized by the use of sinuous graceful curving lines, interlaced patterns, women, flowers, plants and other motifs inspired by nature.
This painting is French matted and framed in an absolutely beautiful floral wooden frame that compliments the floral border and colors in the painting. The frame looks like it was had-painted and made just for this painting! (frame not shown in image. (I will upload an image to show this frame). Size is approximate.
Shipping costs are not added into the cost of this painting.
