Olga Suvorova Annunciation – 1000 Piece Puzzle
What attracted us to Olga Suvorova Annunciation puzzle is the wonderfully colourful and detailed period costume of the characters, and the beautiful wings of the angels. Studying fine art through a jigsaw is a fantastic way to learn about a painting. It helps you to look at the detail that you might otherwise have missed, and you can study the way the artist has worked with the medium in very close detail. In Olga Suvorova Annunciation, look at how the artist has applied the paint to create a lustrous sheen in the costumes, and how she’s created the luminous quality in the skin tones. Notice also how she’s created the intensely beautiful wings with relatively simple brushstrokes to form the feathers from a restricted but complementary palette of colour. Be inspired!
Olga Suvorova’s Annunciation follows a long tradition of reverential artworks depicting the announcement by the angel Gabriel to Mary that she will conceive the Son of God. The ornate costumes—silk and velvet, jewelled and embroidered—are complemented by vibrant flowers and birds, including the symbolic white dove and lilies. The result is a lush tapestry, delicate in feeling but full of undeniably boisterous colour.
About the Artist
Born in Leningrad in 1966, Olga Suvorova is the daughter of the Honored Artist of RSFSR Igor Suvorov. She is the representative of the dynasty of Suvorov artists, which includes the three generations of St Petersburg artists: Olga’s father, Igor Suvorov, Natalia and Olga’s daughter – Ekaterina.
In 1998 Olga Suvorova graduated from Saint-Petersburg Academy of Arts named after Ilya Repin, the workshop of A. Mylnikov.
Olga Suvorova has formed her authentic style of painting – historical costume portraits of personages in the style of various periods, such as the Renaissance and Rococo. Her work is reminiscent of the popular in the 20th century Saint Petersburg artistic movement ‘Mir Iskusstva’ (‘The World of Arts’) which was inspired with the art and culture of the 18th century.
The artist constantly participates in exhibitions in Russia and abroad. Her works are found in private collections in England, America, Germany, China, Russia and other countries.
