About The Artist:

Ivan Jenson is a contemporary American painter. Mid-career, he was invited to draw portraits of Malcolm Forbes' corporate guests aboard the famous \"Forbes Highlander" yacht. Forbes and Jenson became close friends, and Jenson was commissioned to paint the last portrait of Malcolm Forbes. Jenson was also hired by Absolut Vodka to create a work, \"Absolut Jenson\", for the company's iconic national advertising campaign.

A description of this work written by the artist is as follows:
"This large-scale painting is a quintessential example of Ivan Jenson's "colorism style" at its most visually arresting. This sort of highly aesthetically pleasing woman with cascading whirls of rushing hair, vivid blue eyes and pouting lips, is something that Jenson has been developing and refining since the mid-eighties. The woman or girl really, is highly stylized and theatrical, she is Greek, she is Roman, and she could be French or Italian. The face brings to mind the women of Picasso or an ingénue in a Fellini film. Interestingly, many of Jenson's paintings of women sentimentally share a resemblance to his violin virtuoso sister Dylana in her youth.".
