Red Pears and Ribbon, pastel, 26" x 19"
Sandra Caplan follows the tradition of Degas and the Impressionists in relishing the atmospheric softness of pastel. Her floral subjects allow free use of subtle nuances of color and shading. Her technical mastery is demonstrated by her individual style; short, quick strokes of chalk applied to the paper with a sure hand. The results are striking in their vivid sensitivity.
