Oil Painting - The Lovers - painted in France

1995

$6,900

About

This is part of a series of Californian and Europe oil landscapes, painted by the late American artist Herb Kornfeld. This piece is called "The Lovers" because the artist was painting a scene down by a river in Brittany France, when a couple entered into his frame of vision, in the midst of a passionate discussion, framed by the sunlight and the natural beauty of their surroundings. ---- Herb Kornfeld was born in Great Falls, Montana, and trained in Los Angeles at the Chouinard School of Art. Kornfeld has journeyed to China, Sweden, France, Greece, England, Mexico, Canada, and throughout the United States, painting the landscape and its architecture as he saw them in colorful, faceted and geometric shapes, alluding to Cubism and Impressionism. In the latter part of his life, Kornfeld returned to California and using broad, chromatic palette, captured the brilliant light on the coast, hills, valleys of California. With bold use of color and loose, flat brushstrokes -- Kornfeld’s uniquely modernist aesthetic presents each piece as a visually arresting interpretation of the moment. Kornfeld's paintings can be found in private and public collections throughout the world. A selection of his exhibitions include – the Long Beach Museum of Art, The Downey Museum of Art, The U. S. Navy Museum (Washington D.C), Charles M. Russell Museum, Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, The American Academy of Arts, and UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund Tour)- International Tour.
