Painting - 3-d Mixed Media Wood Slats, Varnished Burlap On Canvas
Peñalver (1937-1995), the quintessential 20th Century American Surrealistic Artist of his generation, was a prolific painter before his paralysis in 1979. The ensuing years were challenging as he depicted his transition from walking to wheels in hundreds of paintings.
Monk I (20.5" x 43.25", 1970) is the seminal piece in Ricardo’s Monk Series which inspired many paintings of monks beginning in the 1970s until his passing in 1995. It was sculpted and painted by Ricardo in San Francisco when he was a young strong able-bodied man of 33 years, this stunning 3-dimensional mixed media work of art combines wood slats, varnished burlap and portrait painting.
