JOUVE Paul
"TWO EAGLES ON A ROCK"

ca 1927

About

Ironically, it does not take an eagle-eye view to spot this masterpiece. The pair of eagles (mates for life) proudly and conscientiously stand on top of a rock, ready for duty in perfect and well-defined harmony, undaunted by the harsh conditions they live in. An ideal couples today can still aspire to. A fascinating mixed media artwork, using ink as well as charcoal and pastel, the viewer’s attention is nonetheless inevitably drawn to the eagles’ eyes. Expressing more than words can say, they truly form the windows to the animals’ soul and demand the outmost respect for the artist’s craftsmanship. As contemporary and noble in 1927 as it is today, these lone eagles are not afraid to stand out and stand in pride, dominating the landscape and world around them. The snow-covered mountaintop in the back equally symbolizes purity and tranquility found within and contrasts explicitly with the black feathers.
