Roger Suraud - Allégorie des Arts

Roger Suraud - Allégorie des Arts
Oil on canvas - Hand signed

Through his spirituality and mysticism, Roger Suraud is the undisputed master of "philosophical" painting. "L’allégorie des arts" is an amazing canvas because the painter here represents a world in the making, a world still in limbo. From darkness rises the Earth. And in the beginning was art. Because art is vital, art is life. We admire here the technical prowess of the artist who paints the characters distinct enough to be figured out but also cloudy enough so that they do not exist yet. The Parthenon honours our Greco-Roman heritage. The conductor directs, the painter sketches the new Eve. The writer holds his pen. The sculptor shapes. Two dancers fly away. All arts are featured. Like God, every artist is a demiurge who possesses the power to recreate the world.
