LA FORET, 1997, Mixed Media on Paper, 43.5" x 34.5"



La Foret

1997
Mixed Media on Paper
43.5" x 34.5"

The Gothic cathedral was designed to give a sense of being in a forest with the branches of trees forming a canopy above. In this painting Wilder/Enge took the concept back to the forest. The central figure is derived from a South African herd boy from the Lesotho region. His position of keeper of the family herd gave him a regal status. The Gothic interior is derived from a basilica in Bologna, Italy.
