Rowan | Razgulin : American Realism | Russian Fauvism

November 09 2014 - November 23 2014

Artist's Proof Gallery will showcase the paintings of Victor Razgulin in this two-person exhibition along with works of Carol Rowan.  The decision to showcase two seemingly unrelated artists is inspired by a debate that has raged in artistic circles for centuries.

Carol Rowan, with her intensely realistic landscapes and playful portraits of animals, works with line to order her compositions. 

Victor Razgulin, with his animated brushstrokes and expressive palette, explores color to animate his painting. The battle for the primacy of color versus line has raged since the Renaissance, pitting the Florentine school of disegno, or drawing, with Titian and the Venetian school of colorito, or coloring.  

The exhibition will take place in Artist's Proof new Georgetown space at 1533 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, Washington, DC  20007 from 13 - 23 November 2014.

Opening Reception will be held on Thursday, 13 November from 6 - 8 pm.
