José Luis Checa
Valencia beach scene

About

"Playa Valenciana", oil on canvas by Spanish postimpressionist artist José Luis Checa. His paintings has all the influence of the great artist Joaquin Sorolla: the themes, like this one: at the edge of the sea, but here the characters are not enjoying a day at the beach, they are fishermen, they earn their live with the fruit that the sea gives them. Women are waiting for the catch. The mediterranean light is the protagonist of this painting. Dimension framed: 44 cm H x 57 cm W x 5 cm D Dimension art: 27 cm H x 41 cm W Please, ask us for a shorter shipping time. About the artist: He was born in 1950, Valencia (Spain) but his destiny did not seem to point to the fine arts. His family was quite poor, so he had to start working at a very young age. Following the family tradition he was employed at the local cigarette factory; he also worked as a kitchen assistant. However, he admired the impressionist masters (like Joaquin Sorolla) and was also thrilled with post-impressionism. When he was 25, he started painting in the docks of the Port of Valencia. Checa is an artist with a high visual sensitivity, always moved by the beautiful and changing chromatic skin of nature; he is in love with the fleeting and transitory environment: light, sky, clouds, water .... Therefore Checa is, and always will be, a landscape artist: a theme which is the essence of the most pure and old Impressionist painters. He is a self-taught artist, he paints from nature, and reinterprets what he sees, but without fear, although he later does some final retouching at the studio; but without getting lost in too many changes on first impressions.
