THESE are the gorgeous ladies in red hats (and others) I was raving about a few weeks ago.
They have such an aura of allure and sophistication, reminiscent of the American high style period from the 1930's through the 1950's.
I love them. I found them quite by accident while bungling along on the internet, looking for something else, and thought you would like them, too. Well, do you? Hmmm?
These beauties are the creations of Erik Freyman, American artist who was born in Leningrad, Russia in 1932. His bold, dramatic, air-brushed strokes create images of beautiful women wearing high-end fashions, living in big, affluent cities.
And although these images are American, they remind us of the French Cubists and Impressionists of the Art Deco period.
Erik Freyman is an internationally recognized American artist, who is actually more famous in Europe than here.
He has been a regular participant of ArtExpo International shows in New York since 1984.
His watercolors have a permanent home at the Metropolitan Museum of Art-Thomas J. Watson Library and in many private collections throughout the United States and Europe.
Erik's favorite mediums are watercolor, airbrush, acrylic, oil, drawing and lithographs. His work is available for sale online.
I claim nothing here as my own. I wanted to introduce this talented artist to a new generation of readers and art lovers who may not be aware of his existence.
