Profile: Born in 1947 in France, Arnaud d'Aunay is a painter of deep realism, whose canvases emanate subtle poetry and peaceful atmosphere that each individual relates to. He is greatly inspired by the master Andrew Wyeth, whom d'Aunay met in 1985. Like Wyeth, d'Aunay meticulously fixes the details which leads to their apparent simplicity and traditionalism that holds an eternal character. The artist discovers beauty in ordinary, everyday scenes through his use of composition, color, light and refined Tempura technique. D'Aunay has exhibited throughout Europe and Japan and now exhibits in the United States.
