Framed in a painted gold cast resin frame. The picture measures approximately 1 3/4" x 2 3/8". Signed on the back "JOSEPHINE MEYER". Josephine Meyer has been painting fine miniatures for over twenty years.She achieved Artisan status in IGMA (International Guild of Miniature Artisans) in 2001. You may have seen her paintings in Miniature Collector Magazine, Doll House Miniature, IGMA Exhibits or various miniature shows in the United States. Like the masters, she works in oils on treated wood panel, giving great attention to the subtle mixing, blending and application of color and surface texture to achieve greater naturalism and also capture the play of light on the surface of objects. She personally completes each painting using no tracing or photographic imaging of any kind making each one unique, OOAK. Most frames are handcrafted using wood moldings and sometimes a gold leaf application, though a few frames are cast resin. A professionally trained artist and miniature enthusiast, Jo Meyer was born in Reggio, Italy where she studied art and restoration. Also trained in New York City, and later worked on the restoration of early Renaissance paintings. After painting in large scale for years, Josephine was commissioned by a miniaturist to paint van Gogh's "Starry Night" for her dollhouse... Thanks for looking - ART IS LIFE!
