Children as Art by Elizabeth Koning

For many years Elizabeth Koning lived and worked in Milan, Italy, then London and then back to Milan again, seeing a lot of the advertising world and the hotspots of northern Italy. The Netherlands has a rich tradition in terms of landscape painting. Elizabeth Koning brings to her works elements of this particular style in terms of the 15th century masters and that of landscape painters of the 17th Century. For Elizabeth, using these forms of Dutch landscapes change the most basic elements of nature. She melds together the abstract, the figurative (the clouds, the land itself) and style of portraits painted during the Mannerism period that became so popular following the great Renaissance.
