"Looking At Art"
by: Laura Hamblen
Excerpt from the article: "Looking
...To a lot of people, art means
oil painting. They think of something rather large in scale,
colorful and in an ornate or interesting frame. They also think
of a traditional oil painting as a landscape, a portrait, or
a still life, representational scenes- subjects that have been
painted for centuries and which modern-day artists still paint.
One of the galleries that specializes
in traditional oils is Pejman Galleries in Short Hills. Owner
Bob Pejman displays oils, mostly by living artists that can
best be called "paintings in the style of ." he has
painting that look like the French Impressionists, paintings
done in the neoclassical style that was popular in the 19th
century and paintings with the fine detail and brushwork of
a 17th Century Dutch still life. Pejman, himself a painter
works in a fine classical style. None of these original oils
are copies or interpretations of old paintings. Rather they
are the works by artists who have decided to paint using the
techniques developed and practiced by the old masters.
