Ottawa Collection - National Gallery of Canada Print - #169SKU:
Made in Montreal, Quebec
Renée Bovet was born in Montreal Quebec. She completed her studies in fine arts in 1978 and then plunged heart and soul into a highly refined means of expression, painting on silk. She is now a master at her craft and though her style bears the mark of maturity, it has lost none of its spontaneity. Her works, brimming with joy and vivacity, have retained that freshness which first caught the public's eye. Winner of the Salon des metiers d'arts Public Choice Award, this accomplished artist paints vibrant outdoor scenes in a most remarkable way, using silk as her canvas and special liquid dyes to capture the light for every image she chooses to immortalize. Renée Bovet is an artist with a unique talent for sensing and depicting our joie de vivre.
In the most stunning re-creation of The National Gallery of Canada's "mascot", Maman the spider appears in all her glory, back dropped by the beautiful architecture of the National Gallery of Canada. A personal favorite, this print is a must for any home with an appreciation of great art.
