Ozz Franca

"Ships of Fire 1965"

1965

Original Painting

Acrylic on Canvas

36 x 18 x 1 in  |  91 x 46 x 3 cm
Hand Signed
Condition : Other - Arylic is cracking vertically, there are 2 rosette cracks, otherwise in excellent condition.
Framed without Glass : Natural wood frame
Provenance : The two formations on either side of the ships look like rock formations, and they are literally sculptured paint. Very effective, and it draws the observers into the painting and adds to the mystery. If you look closely you can see the bow of two sailing ships with their masts intact in the background which is the style Franca perfected. This is acrylic on canvas, and it is cracking vertically and there are two rosette type cracks. Purchased around 1965 at an art exhibit in the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Art Brokerage: Ozz Franca. 50 listings. Artist Ozz Franca (1928-1991) graduated from the Fine Arts School in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1949. He won his first prize in art at the age of fourteen in the annual "Spring Salon" at Sao Paulo and from there he went on to win prizes all over Brazil. His great ability won him a scholarship to the University of Utah in 1952. Ozz thought that painting is to grasp a harmony between numerous different relationships and transpose them into a visual scale. His color on canvas is a function of light, varying in intensity and quality. Even the shadows are made up of color, animated by the reflections of the neighboring tones, harmonious, vivid and vibrant. Ozz Franca was continually aware of the vibrancy with which light surrounds things, the quality of light itself, its subtle flow, its reflections which both build up and dissolve forms with rhythmic patterns, harmonies of line and the splendor of color. In addition to Franca's wide range of fine art, including florals, nudes, landscapes, and seascapes, Franca used to win much acclaim for the wonderful sensitivity and subtle harmonies in his interpretations of the expressions and moods of children.
