Wonderful piece of artwork by world renowned artist Pranas Gailius, a Lithuanian artist. Has a title - Metamophosis In Progress? I believe, I have a hard time reading the writing. This piece is nicely framed with glass.The frame measures 30.25" tall x 21.25" wide x. Exposed artwork in mattes measures 13" wide x 20.75" tall. There is no date on the piece that I see. Artwork inside frame seems to wave some, but I believe that is original from medium used. A little more information about the artist is below. The artist PRANAS (his complete name is Pranas Gailius) was born in Lithuania in 1928; his birthplace was a small town and his childhood was spent dose to nature. These early experiences are reflected in his later creative work, where visual elements of nature are presented with deep inner sensitivity.
His peaceful childhood was followed by an adolescence full of the turmoil of the Second World War. In 1946 he came to Strasbourg and became interested in fine arts, the phase where, he felt, his creativity could find the most natural outlet for expression. Since 1950 Pranas has been living in Paris where he was a student of Fernand Lger and also studied lithography at the cole National des Beaux Arts. Pranas' methods of work are versatile. He is equally strong in oil painting, water colors, and graphics where his finesse, love for detail and composition is outstanding.Pranas matured artistically in Paris and was strongly affected by the prevalent artistic and philosophical tendencies. At present he considers himself a member of the new movement la nouvelle Figuration. Pranas is a prolific painter and has had an impressive number of exhibits in France, Germany, and the United States. His paintings have been exhibited at the Galerie du Haut-Pave (1955), Galerie La Voute (Marcel-Lenoir) 1957, Galerie Bellechasse (1958, 1959 and I960), Galerie Le Soleil dans la Tte (1962), and Galerie Dumay 1963, all in Paris. Prints were exhibited at the Salon des Illustrateurs du Liyre 1963, Galerie La Nouvelle Gravure (1963) and Bibliotheque Nationale, Cabinet des Estampes "Gravure contemporaine" (1963) in Paris; also at the Litauische Graphik (1963) in Freiburg. Recently, in November of 1963, he had his first exhibit (oils, prints, and watercolors) in the United States, at the iurlionis Art Gallery in Chicago. The numerous showings of Pranas' works were favorably greeted by art critics, who have had much to say about his work.
