Ella Walton Richardson Fine Art in Charleston, SC, Offers Works by Evgeny and Lydia Baranov

Ella Walton Richardson Fine Art in Charleston, SC, will present Visions of Honfleur, featuring works by Russian-born husband-and-wife-team Evgeny and Lydia Baranov, on view from Jan. 2 - 31, 2014. A reception will be held on Jan. 3, from 5-8pm.

These vibrant works exhibit their exquisite ability to showcase color and architecture, portrayed through the dazzling scenes of Honfleur Harbor in Normandy. The historic beauty of the area combined with the splendor of its waterfront and radiant light makes Honfleur a favorite setting for the pair of artists. The talented duo has mastered a wide range of subjects including stunning architecture, vibrant figures and striking still life works. Even more intriguing is their unique method of painting - simultaneously, on the same canvas whether working in the studio or en plein air. Their work is nationally and internationally acclaimed, with their work represented in over a dozen countries around the globe.

The Baranovs were born in Moscow, and after both attended the Moscow Architectural Institute to receive a Masters of Science in Architecture, they began their journey as artists. The couple has been painting collaboratively for close to twenty years and they currently live in California. The Baranovs travel the world seeking inspiration, and the end results are mesmerizing. Their bold use of color is often breathtaking while they prove their capability to send the viewer to a particular time and place they captured. Their exquisite oil paintings are full of life and their signature impressionist style garners international attention, featured in numerous publications throughout the years.
