Agenda 2023 A5 Semana a la...
Peek into a gilt-edged world of courtly entertainments and intrigues. Olga Suvorova's lavish paintings are populated by musicians, jesters, ladies in waiting, and masked courtiers, and often in company with cheetahs, peacocks, and myriad songbirds. Suvorova's characters and themes are depicted in a signature style influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites, Gustav Klimt, and traditional Russian icons. Her ornate costumes―their silks and velvets, jewels and embroideries―are often the stars of any scene, which she rounds out with musical instruments, games of chance, and more than a few sidelong glances. Suvorova, who comes from a three-generation dynasty of artists, studied monumental composition at the St. Petersburg Academy of Fine Arts. She is known for her portraiture, both at home in Russia and around the world. Twelve of her showstopping paintings are on exhibit within this calendar. All of Pomegranate's calendars are printed with soy-based inks on environmentally sourced paper.
