Ben Fenske
Horse Standing

2014

$12,000

About

An oil painting of a brown horse, standing on green grass on a sunny day. Painted en plein air, after days of studying and sketching, Ben Fenske captured the correct proportions and academically correct anatomy of this strong majestic creature, pensively still. Painted in Wellington, Florida, during the Winter Equestrian Festival. Fenske is a contemporary impressionist painter. Framed dimensions: 32.9 x 38.9 inches Ben Fenske (b. 1978) although a native of Minnesota, and has been working and living in Sag Harbor, New York and Florence, Italy for the last 7 years. An oil painter in the spirit of the 19th and 20th century impressionists, he often chooses informal and contemporary scenes with an implied narrative. His work, which features brash and suggestive brushstrokes, delights in light and color and is regularly exhibited in shows across the US. Fenske has been the subject of countless national articles, notably the American Artist Magazine which included him as one of the Best 25 Living Artists in 2012.
