Featured Review on Dance and Music Paintings
Beautiful example of a unique art form
This is an exceptional example of an art form that could be threatened by contemporary forms of communications: woodcut illustrations of stories from Brazil?s Northeast, hung from strings and sold in markets. This master artist has created a wonderful evocative and humorous scene with deep cultural resonance.
J. Borges Original woodcut prints
"It was not until the age of twelve that I attended school for the first time, but for just ten months... The day I could write my name and read was a big event."

Signed Music-Themed Surrealist Print from Mexico, "Musical Inspiration"
Inspired by music, Mexican artist trio Francisco, Patricia and Gilberto create a composition to add a sophisticated touch to your home decor. In brown and white tones, a saxophone, a cello, and an electric guitar gather before the image of a music sheet superimposed over the keys of a piano. This surrealist composition is realized in the tradition of printmaking, where the artists first etch the image into a metal sheet before applying it to paper with ink. Part of a limited edition, this print arrives within a paper mat.
Titled "Inspiración musical" in Spanish.
'Spectrum in Violet'
Radiating from the center of a warm golden canvas, waves of lilac and violet move gracefully, as though dancing. A closer look reveals layers of yellow, ochre and brown that host lyrical line. A music lover, artist Sessarego explains, "This painting doesn't represent an opera. It takes its inspiration from opera to free the emotions that produce this creation."
Titled "Espectro en violeta" in Spanish.
