Abstract Face Painting by Andreu Martró

MODERN DECORATIVE
This mysterious portrait depicts a veiled or hooded figure, ominously looking to the side with their face mostly covered. The light shining on the figure partly illuminates the facial features, exposing this figure who looks as if they wish to be concealed and creating a dramatic and theatrical result, which could be interpreted as a modernised interpretation of the techniques of Caravaggio. The indistinct filling of the composition suggests we are looking through a window, adding to the overall enigmatic tone of this magnificent painting.

Andreu Martró was born in 1941 in Sant Quintí de Mediona. After graduating in Painting from the Superior School of Fine Arts Sant Jordi, Barcelona, Martró became a Professor at La Llotja School of Art and Design from 1970 to 2002, specialising in Pictorial Procedures and Mural Techniques. The artist's 76 solo exhibitions are a testament to his incredible skill as an abstract painter - he is most widely recognised for his magnificent abstract portraits, which have influences from surrealism.

Combining a painter's eye and a dealer's mind, sourcing and selling artworks is Modern Decorative's passion.

Originally based on London's iconic Portobello Road, we realised the potential of sourcing underrated and underpriced art and antiques still in Spain, so we have now expanded our operations from Richmond to include Barcelona.

We find and sell exceptional pieces from across Europe, from the 19th century to today, to private collectors, companies, interior designers and those that just want to make their homes and work spaces more beautiful.

I am advised in my acquisitions by my father, Gary Jackson, who has over 35 years experience in the trade and is now a full-time painter.

Our ethos is always 'the best signature is the painting itself'.

As an online company, we are constantly updating our website with new pieces, but please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any requests. Where possible, we would be happy to arrange an appointment for you to view works in person.

We would be delighted to hear if you have works for sale. We are always pleased to look at individual works and complete studio collections. Works can also be sold on a consignment basis.

We are highly experienced with handling and shipping artworks, always obtaining competitive shipping rates and ensuring that delivery is carried out with the utmost care.

All business is handled with honesty, discretion and a commitment to quality.

Please do subscribe to our mailing list to be the first to hear about our new finds as they arrive. We have regular special offers for our subscribers.

We look forward to hearing from you and finding the right artwork for your collection.
