Pride of the Gods - Human Figure
With the above painting, please realize that the artist (my husband) is a figure/portrait painter. He is applying his skills to canvas in pursuit of beauty. As an artist, there is no reason that a figure cannot be considered a portrait as well. Observe, please, Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel nudes, Rembrandt, Boucher, Ingres, Renoir, as well as the classical Greek sculptures, which adorn the halls of the world's great museums. Please enjoy these paintings for their beauty of form, as well.
