Louis XVI Acanthus
Acrylic on frosted plexiglass.
approx 15" x 4". 2018.
This is an original painting on frosted plexiglass. It is part of a series of color studies of the many forms of traditional acanthus leaf motifs in classical architecture. This particularly natural, organic acanthus leaf is attributed to the Louis XVI style.
The frosted plexiglass ground is translucent, bouncing light through and around the painting. The piece sits on a small, white shelf (included) with a groove carved into it. The painting can also sit on a shelf.
