Secret Admirer is a painting by Jackie Von Tobel, reproduced as a Fine Art Giclee Print, in her Altered Portraits Collection of wall art. Each composition was inspired by the hard-won artisanship of the old masters, though Jackie brings an avant-garde freshness to these pieces of contemporary art using modern design elements.
In poses that emulate the courtiers and landed gentry of a by-gone era, these contemporary conceptualizations of historical portraits will bring a sophisticated grandeur and lush pops of color to a room.
With his vision obscured by an artfully tied bow made of satin, the gentleman in Secret Admirer stands in a pose of a young aristocrat. The lush fabric of his jacket and waistcoat, and the garland of roses, is reminiscent of the wealth of the Empire era in France and royalty in Great Britain.
