NJ artist Carol Magnatta has created a series of figurative paintings, featuring burlesque dancers, and other lovelies as models, often in costumes of their own creation..
Party's Over, oil on canvas, 40"x 30".
Painted in a loose, yet expressive style, these ladies each have a sensual, captivating look. Feather boas, lace ruffles, and silk adorn the figures, sometimes lounging on a sofa, other times standing, deep in thought.
Behind, pastel on paper, 16"x 20", framed.
For Carol Magnatta, these paintings have been about having fun departing from more traditional subjects.
Carol Magnatta was raised in Cedar Grove, NJ, and has lived in Hunterdon County since the 1980s. Educated at Kean College, and Montclair State, Carol has been an artist her whole life.
