From Michelangelo and Dr. Seuss to Steve Barton and Miri Rozenvain, the Marcus Ashley Gallery has an epic collection of art on display. Travelers to Lake Tahoe can visit the gallery after a day of adventure to experience the magic of art under one roof. This colossal space is also home to inimitable Michael Parkes art. The artist has had a love affair with stone lithography transcending 40 years, and his litho prints are a testament to his passion for the craft.
Through some of his work, Parkes often captures what everyday life looks like in alternate realities. In Sleeping Swan, he paints a stark naked maiden in repose. She lies outstretched, her red curls cascading past her shoulder. A serene swan sleeps nearby; its bill tucked in the tuft of plush feathers on its back. This litho print highlights the luxury of peaceful slumber in the most relatable way.
The artist uses a blend of deep and soft hues to fill the contours and forms of his subjects. Rich black ink permeates the print, creating a striking contrast with the subdued tones. Sleeping Swan will be the perfect addition to a charming hotel, tavern, lodge, or apartment.
