Signed Natalie Silverstein Modern Grisaille Enamel Copper Art Painting Plate Wow
HERES AN AMAZING ORIGINAL VINTAGE 1970S OR 1980S MODERNIST ENAMEL-ON-COPPER PLATE COMPLETED IN THE GRISAILLE TECHNIQUE BY CANADIAN ARTIST NATALIE SILVERSTEIN! Measuring just under seven and one half inches (7 1/2) in diameter by one inch (1) in height, Natalie Silverstein created a very complex and visually stunning enamel painting of a woman standing in a room who is surrounded by all types of patterns including the diamond-shaped floor tile, the diagonal wave-like wallpaper, and the curly-cue patterned draperies! To create her enamel painting, Silverstein employed the Grisaille technique wherein a powdered white vitreous enamel is made into a paste by mixing it with water, turpentine, oil of lavender, or petroleum oil and applied to a dark enamel ground, usually colored black or blue. Lighter areas of the design are thickly painted, while the grey areas are obtained by painting with thinner coats to allow the dark background color to tone the white enamel pigment. This technique achieves a dramatic effect of light and shade and creates an effect of three-dimensional relief. The final result is a monochrome color scheme with varying thicknesses of superimposed layers of white, thus creating half-tones on a dark, opaque or transparent background. Signed on the underside bottom Natalie Silverstein. There are a few infinitesimal surface scratches on the front but these are only visible with a magnifying glass. And there is some wear on the underside bottom where the enamel plate meets the counter. Overall, this enamel-on-copper grisaille art plate is top-notch and an artistic knock-out!
