David Newton (British)
The Peacock Tree, 2011
To create his wondrous paintings, David Newton draws on influences as far ranging as art nouveau, fauvism, impressionism, and cubism. Gustav Klimt’s influence is front and center in this playful image. Is that an abstract representation of Klimt’s “The Kiss” in the trunk of this swirling tree?
