  1. FABULOUS & MARVELOUS PAINTINGS OF ANCIENT MYTHOLOGY AND HISTORY. NO APPROPRIATE WORD AVAILABLE TO APPRECIATE SUITABLY.
    STANDS EQUAL TO LEONARDO VINCE, MICHEAL ANGELO, ETC.
    THE SUBJECTS OF THE PAINTINGS STANDS LIVE IN FRONT OF THE EYES.
    GREAT INDEED.

  2. ES IMPRESIONANTE LA FORMA EN QUE EL ARTISTA CAMBIA EL CONCEPTO “MUJER” EN SUS PINTURAS, QUE LLAMARÉ “CLASICAS”. TODAS SON ALGO EXCEDIDAS EN KILOS, INCLUSO AQUELLAS EN QUE LA TRADICIÓN LAS CONOCE COMO LAS MÁS BELLAS MUJERES DE LA HISTORIA. EN CAMBIO, AL BOCETAR CUADROS O BORRADORES, DONDE LA REPRESENTADA ES UNA MUJER COMÚN DE SU ÉPOCA, SE VEN NATURALES, SIN EXCESOS DE NINGÚN TIPO ¿SERÍA SOLO PARA AGRADAR A LOS QUE LES SOLICITABAN ESAS PINTURAS? O SOLO QUE ESE ERA EL MODELO DE MUJER, QUE ATRAÍOA POR ENTONCES A LOS HOMBRES?
    Y NO ME REFIERO EXCLUSIVAMENTE A ESTE AUTOR, SINO QUE LA MAYORÍA PRRUBENS INCLUÍDO, LAS HA PINTADO GORDITAS, AUNQUE ESTÉ ÚLTIMO LAS HA REPRESENTADO MUCHO MÁS BELLAS, Y BIEN DIFERENCIADAS UNAS DE OTRAS. OK GENIAL, SIGAN MANDÁNDOME LOS CORREOS HABITUALES, SON MIS PREFERIDOS, GRACIAS
