“Gabriella” is an abstract watercolor portrait, alive with soft hues and elegantly framed, reflecting modernity in classical art.
The painting “Gabriella” is an original watercolor created in 2021, part of the “Rebirth Collection”. It depicts the bust of a female figure reminiscent of a handmaid from ancient Rome, painted with delicate strokes of color blending between blue and ochre. The watercolor technique captures the lightness and essence of the subject with fluidity and unpredictability inherent to the medium.
The hairstyle and clothing suggest a classical era, while the ornate gold frame adds elegance and enhances the work’s historical value. The artwork, measuring 8.5 x 6.5 inches and with the frame reaching dimensions of 1.5 x 21 x 23 inches, can be seen as the artist’s tribute to his mother, offering a modern interpretation of classical art yet rooted in figurative tradition.
