About Real and Imagined

Across the panels of this large diptych by Milly Ristvedt, passages of crimson, indigo, orange and burnt umber move and vibrate in a contemplative narrative. The painting is made more profound by its title, "Real and Imagined", which makes a philosophical point with regards to non-figurative art: what one sees in the forms and colors is what is imagined and yet, naturally, informed by what one has been experienced in reality. A monumental masterpiece painted at the height of this artist's creative genius, it has been kept within the artist's private collection until this time.

The two panels will be shipped with hardware for bolting together on arrival.
