The Victory of Samothrace Icon (Yves Klein)

2019

$1,800

About

An original signed acrylic painting on canvas by American artist Jack Graves III (1988-) titled "The Victory of Samothrace Icon (Yves Klein)", 2019. Hand signed, titled, and dated by Graves on verso. This work is inspired by French artist Yves Klein's 1962 sculpture edition "The Victory of Samothrace". The canvas was hand built and stretched onto the stretcher bars by Graves. Part of Graves' 2019 "Icon" series. Canvas size: 48" x 36". Mint condition. The Winged Victory of Samothrace, also called the Nike of Samothrace, is a marble Hellenistic sculpture of Nike, that was created in about the 2nd century BC. Since 1884, it has been prominently displayed at the Louvre and is one of the most celebrated sculptures in the world. H.W. Yves Klein (28 April 1928 – 6 June 1962) was a French artist considered an important figure in post-war European art. He is the leading member of the French artistic movement of Nouveau réalisme founded in 1960 by art critic Pierre Restany. Klein was a pioneer in the development of performance art, and is seen as an inspiration to, and as a forerunner of, Minimal art, as well as Pop art. Jack Graves is an American artist, born in 1988 in Jacksonville, Florida. Jack has developed a talent for creating unique and original works of art winning departmental awards during his early education and while studying at home and abroad at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia and at Newcastle University in England. Since 2013, Jack has been painting professionally, developing a wide audience and base of collectors worldwide. In 2014, he was recognized in Germany by the critical review, “Internationale KUNST HEUTTE” as an emerging international artist. Today his paintings are featured in numerous galleries, on 1stdibs and Artsy, two international digital fine art platforms, as well as his own official website. Jack describes his art style as “Eclecticism”, “a work that juxtaposes two or more different art styles, one from the past and new ones I develop for the future.” This approach has evolved, culminating in a completely new series of paintings he calls the “Icon Series”. In this series he incorporates an idealized, almost photo-realistic face of an international super-star, model or celebrity, an “Icon”, within a matrix of an otherwise totally abstract expressionist composition, which makes the iconic image dazzle. The new “Icon Series” has been met with tremendous success with designers, galleries and fine art collectors from Hong Kong to Manhattan, selling over 60 works in a matter of months of its debut in 2017. He has subsequently introduced a new series called the "Diamond Series", distinctive and attractive multi-colored paintings in the abstract, along with his newest and extraordinary magnum opus "Supreme Collection", which are highly complex and intellectually stimulating master works, all finding their way into fine art collections worldwide.
