Subject: Fantasy

This listing is for an original oil on canvas, "Night Fairies" by Jerome Atherholt, signed by the artist and framed.  This is a lovely 20th century example of sheer imagination.  Under the guise of darkness, but seen by moonlight, five fairies frollick in a home.  On a table, one treats the vase of flowers as a bath, while the others enjoy an arrangement of flowers or fly around the room.  In the distance, a small cat is looking on from the top of the stairs.  It is a beautiful painting in terms of form and contrasting colors, bringing very subtle colors together in a way that strikes the eye slowly.  Most notable, however, is the sheer detail Atherholt brings to his creations - the level of expression and variation of each fairy creature is intense.  In the background, barely visible to the eye but brought to life by camera light is an incredibly well detailed painting on the wall of the home.  It is exactly as it would look in the gloom of midnight, but Atherholt does not settle for a subtle outline of a painting, but rather gives it a full array of detail - see pictures below.  This is a very fine work of contemporary style art with an interesting choice of subject with excellent execution.

Signed lower left, but also in pen/pencil on the back of the frame.
