About

This painting is in excellent condition and has only been shown in a gallery setting. The painting is not framed, but options are available upon request. José Miguel Román Francés was born on January 2, 1950 in Alcoy, Alicante (Spain). At the age of fourteen he began to paint in the workshop of Gaspar Francés Rico. Rico became more of a friend than a teacher, and his work influenced Francés’ artistic formation. Román Francés achieves an overall effect of harmony, peace, and great beauty with his superb draftsmanship. Each piece is filled with the feeling of light that he manages to reflect in everything he paints. His paintings are employed lavishly, with dense buildups in the floral groupings and landscapes surrounding the female figures and children, which are the core and focus from which all else radiates. Francés' work reflects his love for nature and his Spanish heritage. He has had more than 60 personal exhibitions and had participated in many collective ones. Several books have been published about the life and work of the artist. In one of them, titled “Román Francés – Master of Pictorial Light”, Josep Cadena, journalist, chief-editor and art critic, analyzed the artist’s work: “Painting the way Román Francés paints is a quest for connecting with something of interest – a landscape, a female figure, a flower arrangement – and achieving a kind of transcendence of what is sought for expression in accordance with its natural way of being.” Román Francés’ paintings are also featured in other publications; his widespread recognition earned him the honor to commission paint several large historical illustrations in a book about Ethiopia which was published in several countries.
