Judy Nimtz: Italian Paintings 2011-2013

The paintings on linen and panel are portable and intimate studies done on site during Spring residencies the artist and her husband, Kenny Harris did in the Tuscany region of Italy. The artists would arrive each time in early March, taking full advantage of the lull before the hectic tourist season begins. The landscape paintings in the collection capture the essence of Spring overtaking the gentle rolling hills and picturesque villages that dot the Val D’Orcia. Judy Nimtz, known for her poetic figure paintings and atmospheric backgrounds, renders towering cypress trees and architecture with delicate precision and attention to detail.
