Capturing the beauty of a woman’s face has enticed an artist’s imagination for generations. From Rembrandt to Picasso, each artist composes their own style when encapsulating the soul of the feminine expression. At this year’s Art Miami, two formidable artists, one from the east and one from the west, deliver a unique approach to bringing such beauty to life on canvas. Ichiro Tsuruta, the respected Bijin-ga artist, creates delicate and symbolic Japanese-style portraits of women who transmit a mysterious elegance. His contemporary, on the other hand, New York based Israeli artist Yigal Ozeri is best known for his photorealistic paintings of distinctive young women in rich and romantic landscapes. While these artists’ styles are worlds apart, their impressions of the feminine beauty are equally and indelibly forged upon the hearts of those who cast their eyes upon their enduring images.
