Perhaps because of its geographical location adjacent France and near Italy, Spain has always enjoyed a central role in the development of art. Whether El Greco during the Spanish Renaissance, with his expressive conceptual art or the Spanish portrait master, Diego Velazquez, who was the “painter of painters,” Spain and Spaniards have been forces with which to be reckoned.
Vicente Romero went to great effort to produce amazing pastel paintings, which represent the very essence of subtlety and nuance. Whether the viewer backs up to take in the entire scene, or comes in with a magnifying glass to see the tiniest details, the end result is being awestruck. The level of vision first, then skill to execute that creative vision, is beyond belief.
Archival Materials--If the material that Vicente Romero's art is printed on is not of the highest quality, the print itself will be as fleeting as that initial moment in time. That is why only the most premium materials are used for our giclées, thereby allowing Vicente’s art to last many generations.
To guarantee the authenticity and monetary value of the limited edition prints you purchase from Artist-Authorized several crucial steps are taken. First, every authentic work is hand-signed by Vicente Romero. In the case of those on canvas, they are signed in paint on the face, using a brush, and also ink hand-signed by Vicente on the back. In the case of works on paper, they are signed on the front in pencil, again by Vicente’s hand.
While the overwhelming majority of Vicente Romero's art is as was just described, exotically-clothed women in romantic locations, there are a few exceptions—very few. One of his most noteworthy exceptions is his famous work, “Bottles that Illuminate the Night.” This amazing pastel painting is a still-life, an even rarer example that showcases the scope and depth of Vicente Romero's talents.
