Description Inspired by 'Gates of Dawn' by H. Draper, a Victorian academic painter. I just love Victorian nudes. I only had a small black & white reproduction of it when I painted this image. Later I had the opportunity to see the original - my colors turned out to be not far off. But my nude is thoroughly modern - she looks you in the eye. Draper's was an idealized ethereal waif gazing modestly off into the distance.
Paul Wyszkowski, Port Chester NY Member Since December 2006 Artist Statement I was born in Poland, before WWII and arrived on these shores in 1948 (it's a long story). After I paid my dues to the society as a materials engineer I went back to my first love - discovering and inventing images.
I am one of those people who are in love with the world. Yes, the world is challenging and even dangerous but I don't believe it's out to get me. And while some may dispute the intelligence of its design, its artistry is beyond question. I am here not to conquer it but to enjoy it and to share my wonder with you through my art. My intention is to delight your eye while providing a playground for your mind. Enjoy!
