This original figurative painting by Francesca Currie features an realistic impression of a male subject holding an enigmatic pose. This artwork fuses traditional Old masters painting techniques with contemporary embellishments of expressive gestural rendering, infusing the piece with an accentuated emotional energy. In this nude portrait the figure is set against a fiery, red backdrop and this saturated palette appears to complement the mans confident gaze. The veiwer is invited to observe an intimate study that is gracefully employed with sensitivity by the artist and saturated with a suggestion of the figure’s vivid personality. This modern work of art is painted by the artist in oils on line, hand signed and is ready to be hung.
