Andrij Korchynsky, “Old Yard”

n.d. (1990’s?). Oil on canvas, 23″ x 32″. Framed in No. 321—4″ in quartersawn white oak with Saturated Medieval Oak stain, and gilt liner.

Despite the loose style, the sweeping lines and angularity of the roofs suggested the form of the profile—a broad flat sweeping up to a scoop and then beveling back. With respect to line, a narrow raised panel at the sight edge, at the same width as the lines defining the structures, adopts the painter’s standard. A 1/4″ liner oil-gilded with 23 kt gold leaf gives it just the right highlight in keeping with the painting’s palette. A wonderfully dramatic piece from this Ukrainian-American artist from Philadelphia.
