The Contessa Unbound


This larger format painting harks back to the halcyon days of les annees folles, The Roaring Twenties. Our Contessa wears the silk dress and 20s hairstyle of Waugh’s Bright Young Things. The image is a shimmering evocation of a Silver Age. The painting, in acrylic on stretched canvas was built up using the old master technique of scumble and glaze, with multiple layers of colour sandwiched between layers of high viscosity white paint, to allow depth of colour and vividity.
