Beaux Arts Trompe L’Oeil Mirror A489

Grand Beaux Arts trompe l’oeil mirror with roses in the upper left extending from the frame onto the mirror itself, and grass and trees around the lower portion with an empty skiff in the water at the base. The greens combined with the dove grays of the background suffused with pink are particularly pleasing.

Trompe l’oeil literally translates from French to mean “fools the eye.” Hard to paint, the trompe l’oeil piece requires meticulous attention to detail on the part of the artist. Proper sizing and every detail, nuance of light and gradation of color must be skillfully incorporated in order to make the two-dimensional work appear to be three-dimensional.

Measures 63″ x 38″.
