The works of the talented Hélène Delmaire
This talented young woman was inspired by the artistic works of famous painters. Indeed, Fragonard and Joshua Reynolds inspired the portraits of the Girl on Fire. For a realistic rendering, the canvases were drawn with charcoal then with wash and finally in color. Having followed a training in painting of the nineteenth century, Hélène Delmaire left a small artistic touch reminiscent of the creations of that era. In order to have tables and sketches for each sequence, the artist painted 7 to 8 versions of each portrait.
