Oil Painting | Lavoir

This painting was commissioned as part of a large corporate art installation. It honors the Princess Theater in Harriman, Tennessee. It is an oil painting executed on a gessoed panel of birch plywood. The client was shown detailed full-color digital sketches of the composition prior to painting.

The drawing of this composition derives from the work of the Cubists. The primary three practitioners of this movement had studios in a building in Paris called the "bateau lavoir." You can see an image of this building in the poster box between the two red doors. Art Deco, the style of the Princess Theater's architecture, was a popularization of the design discoveries of the Cubists, Contructivists and other early 20th Century artists.
