Characters through Paintings

Every lover of art views a different story when they see a marvel.

When I saw these paintings, it reminded me of the protagonists of the novel, “Good Exists in all that Exists.”

Know more about the artists by tapping on their name. 


We all live through art.

Children's Novel

“The Lady went to the window, “It seems like nature is angry. Look at the wild breeze, it’s unprecedented screams to hear it. The swaying trees seem like they are moving for war.”

(Painting- ‘Lovers’ by Walter Marin Baumhofer. (1904-1987)

Rudolf Tewes

“The ladies at the tea party couldn’t stop gushing about Mr.Peter Austin. Mr. Austin was the city official in Rold Island. He was asked to move to Wintershore so that he could develop the city, just as he did in Rold Island.Mr. Peter Austin is a tall and handsome gentleman. His face boasted of slight stubble and blue eyes. He surely drew many eyeballs from women. But, his eyes were meant only for Lady Austin.”

The novel showcases a mix of cultures. The pelt merchant of Cairo in the painting reminds of Mr.Datta from ‘Good Exists in all that Exists’

Few paintings from around the world, a small initiative to bring you closer to art.

Happy Painting!
