Acrylic on canvas painting titled on reverse "Memory of Rosie", 17" by 24" (21 1/2" by 29" framed). The image is whimsical and rather mysterious, consisting of three white vases or pots each bearing an image, one of a cat, one a bird, one a jester; one speculates that perhaps, Rosie was a beloved cat. Highly stylized plants or flowers emerge from the pots. The artist signed at lower right and dated the painting 1984. CAROL JABLONSKY (1939-1992) died at a young age but left behind a large body of work, including prints and original paintings. A collector on askart provided biographical information she had gleaned: "Jablonsky was born in Port Washington, New York in 1939, she studied art at Boston University; Art Students League, New York and Institute Allende, Mexico. Her works were exhibited through out the U.S. and Mexico, including the El Paso Museum of Art, Galleria San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and National Society of Painters in Casein, New York. Her mediums were etchings, watercolors, casein tempera paintings, lithographs and drypoints and were typified by delicate colors and imaginative characterizations. She devoted many hours of painstaking research to each image, drawing upon a wide variety of sources, including medieval book illuminations and sculpture, Roman frescoes, the Bible, astrology, Oriental philosophies and American and English literature. The resulting imagery had intense symbolism that belied its simplicity. Her works encompassed a variety of subjects, including the mythological character Pegasus, creatures from a medieval bestiary, and the story of Moses. Between 1975 and 1979, Jablonsky devoted herself to a project based on the theme of the Garden of Eden." Jablonsky's works are filled with images of animals, mythology and legends, religion, mysticism, and spirituality. This painting is in excellent condition and is ready for display. The artist appears to have used very high quality materials. See the net for other images of Jablonsky's works.
