Klimt This Fall at Neue Galerie, New York by VFG

Women of Vienna's Golden Age 1900-1918 : Portraits by Gustav Klimt (1862-1918)

Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer 1907 by Gustav Klimt  (1862-1918)

Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer 1907 by Gustav Klimt  (1862-1918)

" The Women of Vienna's Golden Age"  , this Autumn's exhibition of portraits by artist Gustav Klimt at the  Neue Galerie , New York, NY.

 In 1996, the first time I saw Klimt's most famous portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer , the painting was still hanging in the Belvedere Museum in Vienna. Upon first sight of the Nazi looted portrait , referred to then as , 'the Woman in Gold' or more commonly as the , 'Viennese Mona Lisa ' , I recall no words in which to suffice , as to describe either the depth of beauty or the emotional attachment apparent between Klimt and Adele , still ever present today , in this masterpiece portrait . The concentration of Klimt's focus on his subject Adele cannot be ignored in this painting , his emotions are captured in every brush stroke, evoking from the viewer , an equal intensity of love and adoration for Adele. 

 Experience this Gustav Klimt painting yourself ! The exhibition runs from September 2016 until January 16, 2017

Wells Fargo : Art is a Cultural Identity by VFG

 #VincentFarrellGallery WAS an account holder at #WellsFargo bank for 30+years , we had 2 mortgages with this bank also which were paid for by sales from paintings and fine art prints. The recent advertising campaign which pits an artist's career against the more lucrative job of a scientist, is so disheartening . Redeem yourselves Wells Fargo by contributing to arts education through grants and scholarships ! 

We prefer to take the advice of Kurt Vonnegut ....

A Laguna Morning by VFG

We have two new consignments at Vincent Farrell Gallery and they share the same title, "Laguna Morning" . 

"Laguna Morning" 1977

"Laguna Morning " 1993

Two different subject matters which were painted at the best time of the day in the magnificent early morning light.

"My love affair with a painting subject ends, when the painting is finished and then,  I am ready to move on to the next subject ..." Vincent Farrell

There were always many paintings in the works in his studio in Laguna and giving a painting its title was never a priority what was important was the work , committing the subject to canvas and then, moving on to the next. 

Click on the painting  image to enlarge it into a light box and get a better view of the textured details and command of pure, saturated colors . For more details or questions about these paintings, click  Here .

Hath put a spirit of youth in everything"

A Floral and the Pacific Ocean Blue by VFG

Flowers and the Pacific Ocean blue are the two elements which artist Vincent Farrell loved the most about Laguna Beach. Laguna Beach, nestled in the "California Flouristic Provence", where warm sunny days end ablaze in a passionate, phosphorescent sunsets, and nights begin with a gossamer, empyrean vapor blanket of ocean mist, putting to rest, all the flora and fauna for a good night's reguvenative sleep.

In these two original paintings, we have a rare, watercolor floral paired with another oil painting on linen canvas of the beach at Moss street in Laguna Beach. 

image.jpg

The floral watercolor displays the personal every day items of the artist; Sable paint brushes in a clay jar, colorful ink used for painting and sketching, a Tiffany portable clock, a newspaper and Farrel's favorite coffee cup , with two large vases abundant with flowers, mostly taken from his own garden. This watercolor is one in a series of four, the artist created in his private residence.

Moss Point was a favorite beach of the artist. During the 1960's Farrell lived across the street, in an artist studio, located on South Pacific Coast Hwy. In this painting scene, the homes located on the bluff are some of the first homes built in Laguna Beach and they are recorded on the Laguna Beach Historical register. Academy Award winning actress, Bette Davis, had a redwood beach cottage on this very bluff, as most of the original structures built in the early part of the 20th century were made of California redwood. This painting was created in 1975 and captures the coastline as it was during the 20th century. 

These paintings are available for purchase. For details about these paintings and more, please fill out our contact form on the contact page of our website.
