Our Argentinian and Spanish award winning artist Nieves Estaje returns to charaleeg´s Word Press Art Chat
Her work brings a sense of feeling and warmth for the viewer to enjoy. The work, Polo, is reminiscent of the paintings of Paolo Uccello and his focus on the importance of perspective. Nieves captures Uccello´s style which is brought to the 21st century with the elements of the light and subtlety employed by Edgar Degas in his impressionist works. Again of the importance of perspective, sculpturing and conveying a sense of balance in Degas works, Woman Bathing in a Shallow Tub, 1885 and The Parade, also known as Race Horses in front of the Tribunes Circa 1866-1868 show similarities in style to Estaje´s painting.
