Untitled by J. Roybal Oil on canvas
Title: Untitled
Artist: J. Roybal
Year: 1996
Dimensions: 24×20
Medium: Oil on canvas
Description: I picked this piece up while I was in New York, along with another Roybal. I had never heard of the artist at that time, but I felt that his painting was somewhat similar in nature to another South American artist, Botero. Roybal’s pieces have become so popular that they have been knocked-off and sold at various “Roadside” Art Shows. What distinguishes his originals from the knock-offs are the detailed brush strokes in glazing which gives the piece a thick, rich finish.
