THIS IS AN ORIGINAL OIL ON CANVAS FROM EMERGING ISRAELI ARTIST MICHAEL KERMAN!!!
AN ORIGINAL--NOT A PRINT--AT AN UNHEARD OF PRICE
Take a few minutes to admire... better yet... bid on this one of a kind oil original painting from world famous upcoming Israeli artist MICHAEL KERMAN.
This is a large OIL painting on canvas measuring approx 24" x 29". It is brush signed by KERMAN. It is in excellent, new condition ready to be stretched and framed. It features two beautiful stunningly clad young ladies, looking sultry as they sit outside, one taking in the scent of a flower lovingly with her eyes closed, perhaps a gift from a beau, while her friend looks on, shall we say, less than enthusiastically.
Comes with a COA from Dan Gallery, in Tel Aviv. This is part of a large group of oils and silkscreens we imported from Israel that we are bringing to auction.
About the artist: Michael Kerman was born in the Ukraine in 1964. His father, Wolf Kerman is a well-known painter. In 1982 he graduated from the Ukraine Republic Art School and in the same year he was accepted into the Kiev High Academy of Art from which he graduated with honors. In 1986 he joined a group of dissident artists who created and exhibited all over Europe. Kerman's paintings are strongly influenced by the post impressionists, particularly Mattisse. His subjects and atmosphere are turn-of-the-century European. He works mostly in acrylic on canvas, using the human figure as a formal, rather than expressive emotional element. Their poses are theatrical, exaggerated, clothed in carefully selected costumes in order to achieve the atmosphere of the composition, frozen in time and undisturbed by man. The colors he uses are dictated by his goal to achieve a balanced composition pursued through form and color.
KERMAN'S EMERGING BODY OF WORK IS OFTEN COMPARED TO FELLOW ISRAELI ARTISTS ITZCHAK TARKAY AND ISAAC MAIMON DUE TO THEIR SIMILIAR STYLE. KERMAN'S WORK TENDS TO FEATURE YOUNGER LADIES, USES BRIGHT COLORS OFTEN WITH ELABORATE BACKGROUNDS, WITH AN ALMOST, BUT NOT QUITE CUBIC USE OF SHADING IN THE FACIAL AREA.
IF YOU ENJOY THE WORK OF TARKAY AND MAIMON, YOU WILL SURELY LOVE THIS PIECE BY KERMAN! EXCELLANT INVESTMENT POTENTIAL!
