The Marcus Ashley Gallery extends a host of luxury services to its clients and customers. As part of its services, the staff provides custom framing, hosts private home shows, and offers worldwide shipping. It’s no surprise why visitors prefer to visit this grand establishment to view and buy art. The gallery is proud to curate an enviable array of collections, including Michael Parkes art.
In many of his paintings, the artist captures the fantastical world of angel-protectors alongside their animal species. In The Letter Study, an angel-protector is closely reading the contents of a letter. Judging from her companion’s reaction, it doesn’t contain good news.
Parkes has conveyed deep narratives such as the near extinction of an angel-protector’s species. He uses real-world scenarios as inspiration, such as man’s thirst for destruction and the consequences of his actions on the animal kingdom. This painting perhaps echoes the pain that angel-protectors and their species experience due to near extinction.
Rich tones of ivory, velvety black, and vintage gold add definition and depth to this painting. The Letter Study will make a lovely addition to one’s growing collection of Parkes’s work. Create a strong aesthetic in any room by mounting this canvas on its own or paired with other paintings by the artist.
