Miniature Artwork, Pontefract Castle, gift for art lovers
Pickup currently unavailable
Miniature Artwork, Pontefract Castle is an original acrylic ACEO painting. It is framed and can make a wonderful gift for art lovers.
The Castle in Pontefract is a ruin since 1644. Oliver Cromwell is guilty of destroying it. Rhia wishes she could prevent him from doing such a crime (it's, of course, beyond the bounds of possibility :-/).
The castle was artwork on its own. It is a gorgeous 'mountain' of medieval fortified structure with its motte and keep; bridges and curtain walls. Rhia would love to see it as it was in the 16th century!
Here, Rhia just painted it in the style of Alexander Keirincx by accurately copying his work. She said, "It was quite a strange experience to try to paint like someone else. Especially odd because I was creating a miniature of considerable-sized and antiquated artwork."
Alexander Keirincx (1600 - 1652) was a Flemish Baroque painter who received a commission from Charles I, King of England, Scotland, and Ireland, for ten noble houses paintings. His Pontefract Castle piece was one of the commissioned artworks.
