Serigraph   30" x 24"  
Edition of 195

While Nieto maintains that his art "is the result of an emotional involvement with my subject matter rather than a cerebral one," his powerfully evocative paintings reveal a seamless blend of instinct and keen intelligence. His deft handling of Western motifs - including Native American tribal representatives, warriors, and ceremonial dancers, as well as legendary frontiersmen or indigenous wildlife - demonstrates why these icons still loom large in the national consciousness. Wielding his brush with precision and control, Nieto invests each figure with a mesmerizing presence.

His personal philosophy plays a large role in his approach to art. "I employ subject matter that is familiar and express it from my own perspective," he explains. Nieto's extraordinary ability to project the essential core of his subject-viewed within the context of his own uncompromising vision-accounts for the seemingly impossible task of communicating the stately qualities of these figures without any trace of condescension or hyperbole.


  The Russian-born painter Romain de Tirtoff, who called himself Erté after the French pronunciation of his initials, was one of the foremost fashion and stage designers of the early twentieth century.


  A major figure in American art, Lichtenstein drew attention to Pop painting in the 1960s with his distinctive renderings of comic books and advertisements. Unlike abstract expressionists, Lichtenstein relished mimicking familiar images in popular culture.

"Having been honored with solo shows in the United States, Europe and Asia, my work has received much recognition throughout the globe, for which I am extremely grateful."


Chagall's distinctive use of color and form is derived partly from Russian expressionism and was influenced decisively by French cubism. Crystallizing his style early, as in Candles in the Dark (1908, artist's collection), he later developed subtle variations.


Alphonse Mucha's artwork has
become synonymous with art nouveau's most recognizable features: organic curving forms, female subjects, lavish
ornamentation and exotic use of color. Though Mucha did not invent the style, it was through his work that the,
European exponent of the style found its most visable manifestation.


Erté now offers us the thrill of celebrating major occasions (and quiet, love-inspired candlelight dinners) with his special "Flute Majestique" - named for the oversized champagne flutes used by Imperial Czarist Russia at the time of Erté's birth in 1892.
