Vail Oxley - Impressionist painter




Vail Oxley is a Beijing-based artist that creates impressionist style garden scenes. Oxley prefers a country ambience reminiscent of Monet's Giverny paintings. The artist's paintings are gentle themes; painted using a clear, bright palette and soft edged visual style.
Vail Oxley's work has become popular around the world. Born in the countryside near Beijing, China, Oxley was influenced from an early age by the time he spent fishing with his beloved grandfather. The tranquility of water is a dominant theme in his paintings. He shows a deep understanding of light, movement, and color in his works, and this has struck a chord in the general public.
Today, Vail Oxley's work is available in many forms. Prints, china, tapestries and many other items have been made bearing reproductions of his work. His love of flowers, soft light, water, and classic themes, such as country cottages and Greek columns in nature, gives his work a timeless quality that collectors appreciate.

Jacqueline Williams, 1962 - British painter

"I first met Jackie Williams when she was a student at the Royal Academy Schools in the mid eighties. Already I could see she was following her own particular vision which had nothing to do with being consciously innovative or modern. Already as a student she showed a toughness and determination to swim against the tide if necessary, for she would not be drawn along by any current of fashion.
Jackie's work is a celebration of nature, of beauty, and of light, and being celebratory she touches cords in her followers and reveals to them a world, her world, to which they can respond.

Sir Anthony van Dyck - Family Portrait, 1621

Sir Anthony van Dyck studied under Peter Paul Rubens and was one of his most accomplished students. Van Dyck's career flourished and he went on to become England's leading court painter.
Using his own compositional techniques, van Dyck was soon ranked alongside Titian in terms of style and the relaxed elegance of his portraits helped shape English portraiture for almost two centuries. Anthony van Dyck was particularly well-known for redefining the iconographical style as well as his fresh approach to new color schemes.
As well as portraits van Dyck also painted biblical and mythological subjects and was an accomplished etcher and engraver in his own right. He would often sketch his works as practise before executing the final version onto canvas.
His etchings in particular show his great ability to define light and shadow contrasts and his dexterity in creating fine lines and detail to ensure a realistic rendering of the sitter.
