2017 Gallery and auction house Enakor, Sofia, Bulgaria, participating in the “European night of the museums – Sofia”
Lyubena Fox and Thibault Barrere for the first time in Bulgaria, exhibiting paintings showcasing the revival of classical realism
They meet in Florence, Italy, led by their common passion – to convey through art their ideal of beauty and grace. Graduates of the Angel Academy of Art, they use the techniques studied there to develop their own style and sense of design, composition and colors. Although they are modern artists with a modern drawing, they are inspired by their love for classical painting, from Baroque through Rococo and Neoclassicism to Romanticism.
“This exhibition is retrospective, going through the different steps of our development – from the beginning of our training, starting with graphite, passing through charcoal and continuing with oil painting. Some of the works are from our days at the academy, others are preparations for upcoming paintings, and some are completed paintings showing our developing style.”
