Alexei L. Antonov desires to revive and expand the techniques of great Renaissance masters and spearhead a new artistic Renaissance in the modern era. He has created a colossal array of still life paintings, which are filled with vibrant color and ornate, luxurious detail. Mr. Antonov has also developed an elaborate technique of realistic portraiture, and his "Portrait of Aurora," found in this gallery, conveys the dignity, curiosity, and innocence of a young girl. Mr. Antonov's homepage can be found at http://www.antonovart.com/, where his works can be purchased, and he can be contacted. Click here to return to the Main Hall of Mr. Stolyarov's Gallery.

Mr. Stolyarov's Gallery of Rational Art: Alexei L. Antonov
Centuries ago people invented a wheel, domesticated a dog, introduced seven musical notes... for us, their descendants, to use. Renaissance artists invented an oil painting technique unsurpassed to this day. Then why we so ungratefully neglect the highest achievements of Renaissance artists and mock art consumers with worthless experiments?          ~ Alexei L. Antonov
