ABOUT THE VICTORIAN SERIES
The “Victorian Series” is a series of 6 canvas inspired on the Victorian era, a period of Queen Victoria’s reign from June 1837 until her death in January 1901. It lies between the Georgian and Edwardian periods, and its second half coincides with the beginning of the Belle Époque in continental Europe. Some scholars might extend the beginning of the period to the passage of the Reform Act of 1832, as the mark of the true beginning of a new cultural era. The complete series is composed by the canvas The Garden of Secrets (100x40cm), Sunflower (40x40cm), Rose (40x40cm), Red Camellia (40x40cm), Lavandula (40x40cm) and Kadupul (40x40cm).
Jaime R Ferreira’s work explores, reflects and captures the spirit of colors. Giving color to shape and shaping color are constants in his painting. Its figures and shapes create theatrical and magical environments that aim to tell stories with emotions.
Jaime R Ferreira was born in the medieval village of Santo Estevão, in Chaves, in 1962. He had master Jaime Silva as a teacher at the National Society of Fine Arts, what allowed him to join his individual path of contact with other countries and cultures with the world of arts, but it was in Paris that he really discovered painting.
