Original painting in oil on canvas.
Alexandra Baraitser's large canvases pay homage to the greatest Scandinavian design of the twentieth century. Baraitser's most recent works focus on lighting designs of Danish designer Poul Henningsen (1894 - 1967) who worked with Danish manufacturer Louis Poulsen. They are still popular today and by painting them, Baraitser invites discussion of the relationship between 'high art' abstraction and contemporary design.
Baraitser trained at Chelsea College of Art and went on to win scholarships and prizes including The British School at Rome, John Moores painting prize, NatWest Art Prize and The Design Centre, Tasmania.
