ART: by Anna Razumovskaya - "Romanticism"

About the artist:
With her classic figurative forms, highly acclaimed Russian artist Anna Razumovskaya magically captures the lyrical romanticism of renaissance portraiture, while creating art that is completely modern and original. Anna is inspired by the graceful elegance of the female form, at turns, classically alluring, demure and provocative. Her art has a pervasive sense of “romanticism” and the passionate and dynamic application of paint on the canvas and the artist’s signature use of expressive colour, combine to create her uniquely recognizable style. 
Anna is a graduate of the Russian State University For Arts, where she was awarded the distinction of high-class artist in 1991. Subsequently she studied art in Germany, Belgium and Holland. With solo exhibitions in New York, Paris, Toronto, Amsterdam, Antwerp and Berlin and numerous works in private collections across the globe, she has become one of the most exciting and collectable artists on the contemporary scene. 
Born at the height of the cold war, Anna was exposed to very different worlds, that of the austere communist regime alongside the sophistication and feminity of her fashion-conscious mother. She excelled at art school and enjoyed the freedom of learning and perfecting her technique in a variety of different media. Of particular interest to her were the portrait masters of the late 19th Century, John Singer Sargent, the Russian painter Valentin Serov and earlier masters such as Peter Paul Rubens and Rembrandt. She travelled around Europe absorbing the influences of artists past and present and finally settled in Canada which she now feels to be her true home. 
Anna Razumovskaya, the artist

Looking at Anna Razumovskaya's works you always getting a feeling of artist sole tension behind the painting. "Romanticism" is the word to describe Anna's works. Interlacing of quiet tones with the bright color impact at the end is the trade mark of the artist. Abstract elements are the big aspect of every artwork and in a combination with the sensual dynamics, creates an unforgettable experience for the viewer.

  1. All the paintings here are simply superb. Like you said, being in the cold war era Anna must have experienced the silent tussle that went out all around her.
    Hope to see more of her work.
