Le Chevalier Blue - Dorit Levinstein - Eden Gallery

About The Artwork

“Le Chevalier Blue” by Dorit Levinstein, part of her "Studying the Masters" collection, is an original hand-painted bronze sculpture that draws inspiration from Anthony van Dyck's "Charles V on Horseback." This work reimagines the classic image with a focus on the interplay of nobility and perception, as noted by Levinstein. In her rendition, the rider, depicted as faceless and without a distinct identity, contrasts with Van Dyck's more detailed portrayal. This artistic choice emphasizes the role of the horse in imparting an impression of strength and nobility to the rider. The use of blue in the sculpture's title suggests that Levinstein has employed a dominant blue palette, adding a contemporary and symbolic layer to the artwork. The sculpture captures the regal posture of the horse and the dignified presence of the rider through Levinstein's vibrant colors and fluid sculptural lines. "Le Chevalier Blue" becomes more than a homage to Van Dyck; it's a statement on the essence of nobility and the power of artistic interpretation, showcasing Levinstein's unique approach to exploring historical art themes.

About The Artist

Dorit Levinstein’s work invites you to step into her universe of forms, figures, and colors. Her spare, elegant sculptures seem to giggle with delight as if tickled and then stretch out with an exquisite elasticity to form their position in space. The sculptures derive their volume from a continuous virtuosic line alluding to human figures, animals, flowers, and objects. Each of the twirling figures is painted in vivid colors, creating rhythmic patterns that regularly repeat themselves like variations on a well-loved tune. Despite its apparent simplicity, the work is the result of a creative and sophisticated process. To master these lean and airy figures, one needs the skill and dexterity of a professional dancer who practices daily to perform the seemingly effortless pirouette. Levinstein’s work can be found in private collections worldwide and is exhibited in exclusive Fine Art galleries. Levinstein also creates commissioned works for indoor and outdoor settings and her monumental outdoor sculptures grace the landscape of many municipalities. EDEN Gallery has been Dorit Levinstein’s exclusive worldwide publisher since 1999.
