New Art Thursday: Natural Beauty

Diane Eugster, A Single Rose

This week I noticed quite a few portraits depicting beautiful women. Some take inspiration from Classical paintings, others capture everyday situations like a train commute. Whether realist or abstract, these works capture the beauty of these subjects — both in their looks and the personality that shines through.

As Henri Matisse once said, “The portrait is one of the most curious art forms. It demands special qualities in the artist, and an almost total kinship with the model."
