“MUSICO CALLEJERO” (Street Musician) by Dulce Beatriz Oil on Canvas 32″ x 48″ (81.3 cm x 121.9 cm)
This Old Man by Dulce Beatriz depicts a street musician, painted from a live model, playing the cello. Notice the look of concentration in his eyes and feeling in his face. The play of light highlights the strong hands especially his right hand holding the bow, which demonstrates his excellent technique as a musician. Notice the faithful rendition of the musical instrument itself, which shows the Scroll at the top of the peg-box, the bridge, the F-Hole and other details. One can almost feel the vibration in the air as the low-tone notes emerge as the musician slides his bow over the strings. Truly a remarkable piece.
