Gilt Obscured Woman-Precious Metals Framed Art


    Taking traditional portraiture to a modern interpretation, Gilt Obscured Woman shows a genteel lady partially concealed behind a block of 24 carat gold. Part of our Precious Metals collection, she looks out at us with a quiet, elegant gracefulness, the opulent gold leaf masking her. What is she hiding? Why is she concealed? And is she aware of the moth nestling in her hair, adornment-like?

    Portraits tell stories of their sitters and this artwork is a response to our fascination of the way in which human beings hide behind facades and guises to conceal or alter elements of their physical appearance.

    Our artwork is supplied in a choice of frames, beautifully printed onto highest quality archival artist cotton paper, hand gilded with 24 carat gold leaf and varnished, making each piece a truly unique work of art.

    Gilt Obscured Woman is shown together with Gilt Obscured Man in Baroque black frames on Fenwick & Tilbrook paint, no. 53 "Natterjack".
