The Ladies Lounge - After Kees von Dongan

The Ladies Lounge 
After Kees von Dongan


11 x 14 Oil Painting on Canvas

Art within Art Series

I am always looking for new artist that I can study
and paint with. Kees von Dongan caught my eye.
I love his flair for beautiful woman caught my eye.
However, I could not decide on just one or two
of his beauties so I decided to use four in one painting.
They all look so relaxed and mellow. Nice wine, art and
music to enjoy together. The painting on the wall is
Kees Van Dongen: Tango or The Tango of the Archangel,
ca. 1923 - 1935 and a very interesting composition.
Here is a beautiful site with may of his paintings that
 I used for this piece.
If you have an artist that you would like to see in an
Art within Art painting other than the artists I have already
painted please leave a comment or send me an email.
You will not be under any obligations to purchase the
painting.  I like to have input from my fans and collectors.

Comments and Followers are appreciated.

Kees van Dongen, it turns out, was a Dutch painter, born in
 Rotterdam on 26 January 1877, at, according to Astrodatabank,
7am. He moved to Paris in his twenties and achieved some success,
using inspiration from the raw sensuality he found in that great city.

Van Dongen can be seen an observer of society, from the bohemian
world through to the “cocktail age,” his work is influenced by the
scandalous and urban world of cabaret, the circus and women, very
different from the landscape Fauvism (often associated with this
movement) and later ventures into the Parisian high society and his
 representation of the Roaring Twenties.  For more information in this
exhibit, please visit The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
