Additional Information

Pewter jug, Ming ginger jar and diverse fruit by Jos Kivits –  born and trained in the Netherlands, but since his arrival in Australia in 1986 he is now internationally registered as an Australian Artist.

Painted on a gesso prepared marine-ply panel with quality OIL PIGMENTS mixed with an age old oil medium recipe.

FRAMED AND READY TO HANG.

A fine classic and mature painting that has every aspect of the masters of the 17 to the 20th century. Painted in 2005 it had a prominent place in the private ‘Kivits collection’ until space did not allow it anymore. Kivits did not sell any work for well over a decade, yet he painted his best works during this period, and this is the first importunity to score again one of his masterly painted creations. These paintings will always be classic, not just vintage!

All the articles (called ‘props’) are genuine antiques, still in the possession of the artist today.

Kivits’ paintings are totally painted, with a different array of artist brushes. Every thing you see is layers of paint put on by hand with a brush. No spray paint short cuts, in order to give soft lines as in graffiti art or as in correcting photos are used.

No artificial, computer generated, of photographic means is used in any way. No photo with pre gritted lines, not projecting, camera obscura, or painting from a photo or computer next to the easel is used. Everything is done according to the techniques of the old masters. Set up or models of objects, flowers of people are allowed, but not photographed models or tracing. Even the medium is a recipe passed on from generations of master artists. Many of Kivits’ paintings are layer upon layer, and it is this that creates an unsatisfactory dull flat reproduction when a photo is made from the paintings. The camera has the tendency to only see the top layer and not the depth through thin transparent layers of glazes. It is also for this reason that he does do not like copies to be made of any of his works, although unauthorized and reproductions are seen at times. Earlier years a set of six paintings have been made for place mats 40 years ago, one painting has been made to be reproduced for charity, post cards have been made for charity, but never in the real size, but some have cropped up and have sold on auction as real.
