SWORD AND JUSTICE

HUILE SUR TOILE/OIL PAINTING ON CANVAS, 50cmX100cm/19,7"X39,5"


EDIT : SOLD

I had sworn to no longer make a canvas inspired by Art Nouveau, too delicate, too difficult; it's a challenge of which you necessarily lose. :/
But I'm still quite happy with the result, even though the gestation was as long and arduous as expected.
For the pose as for the staging, I was inspired by "THE REPUBLIC" by Gérôme, by adapting the pose and the curves to make it closer to the language of Art Nouveau ... and obviously I was inspired by Mucha for the decorative elements.

PRINCESS OF MARS

HUILE SUR TOILE/OIL PAINTING ON CANVAS, 65cmX92cm/25,6"X36,2"


EDIT: RESERVED
This painting is part of our exhibition "DIVINES" and can be shipped only from March, 2019

Dejah Thoris, I've been around for years.

I made a first elongated draft, but I had the feeling that this languid pose did not sum up the character's strength of character and combativeness. So I went back to making a front version of her, in a defiant, feline and sensual yet threatening attitude.
A wildcat attitude, ready to pounce ...
For ornaments, no futuristic version; I went back to the base of her creation (1917 if I am not mistaken) and I was inspired by what seemed the height of exoticism for the public of the second decade of the twentieth century, The Ballets Russes, and the stage costumes of Mata Hari.

The character is described by his creator as being covered (and not dressed) with gold jewelry, without false modesty.
A little shading here to pass the censorship, and ornaments there to not shock the Puritans.

Well, if they are anyway, too bad.
