bongofury,

Nice score on the Tyree. It is going to look amazing along with all your other velvets! Do tell how and where you found it?

Thanks for posting it.

PTD

This image is very appealing, without a doubt. But beyond that, the use of background color playing against foreground color is just plain masterful! And then the texture of the foliage vs. the texture of the flesh is so well done; same paint, nearly the same color, completely different take! This stuff ain't easy to do. I like this painting a whole lot!

Thanks....PTD I found it at a college flea market that usually has a bunch of crap & new stuff. First big score from it after years. Just a dude with a bunch of thrift store paintings, this one was behind some junk he had.

Guess I should post this velvet I recently picked up in this thread:



This painting is by Joy Caros who specializes in Velvet paintings of all different personalities including even some of Israeli leaders(?). Most of her work is from the sixties and seventies and she is still around today.





Mahalo, TabooDan

Sweet! That is my favorite Erwin. I wonder
how many times he painted that image.
I read somewhere that he considered it his masterpiece.

Probably read it in Black Velvet Masterpieces, it was a quote along with the only Erwin in the book (page 57), which coiencidently is the same one I purchased today. The book states the painting as "Untitled", mine has a tag on the back calling this painting "Tahitian Reverie". Come to think of it, this is the only Erwin I have seen. I can't remember off the top of my head if bongofury has one, if anyone does, it would be him!

A swapmeet find from a few months ago....





Looks to be the original frame, missing the brown paper backing, so no title... only Erwin on the front

Ku,

Nice painting...Erwin is truly one of the unsung velvet masters and the quality and vivid colors really come out in his work. Thanks for sharing!

You probably know, all ready, but here's the (tinted) L. Gauthier photo that Erwin used as a model:

Found this at an antique store in Englishtown NJ for $5.

Something about it "sings" to me.

I call him "The Contemplative Monkey"

My Grandfather got this black velvet nude in the Philippines in 1969. He has since handed it down to me. The artist appears to be Payawal and it is dated 69. Does anyone have any information at all on this painting or atist, etc? All replies appreciated...
