Lilacs and Vines

2020

$24,000

About

An oil painting of freshly cut lilacs in a glass vase, painted at midday on the terrace at the artists's Tuscan home. Bright sunlight beams down onto the grouping of flowers, casting speckled shadows below. A grand green landscape of rolling hills serve as a magnificent backdrop. The horizon lays at the top third of the canvas, meeting a light blue sky scattered with white puffs of clouds. Painting dimensions: 39.5 x 47.25 inches Framed dimensions: 45.5 x 53.25 inches Framed in an Italian, handmade, gold leaf frame. Biography: 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 12 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, most notably the American Artist Magazine which included him as one of the Best 25 Living Artists in 2012. Education: Russian Academy of Art Florence Academy of Art Studio of Joseph Paquet, Minnesota Bougie Studio, Minnesota.
