The Hills Pastel Portraits by Karin Bubaš

Artist: Karin Bubaš


In using soft chalk pastel as a medium Bubaš evokes the work of artists such as Paul César Helleu, famous for his portraits of fashionable society women in the Edwardian era, as well as Toulouse-Lautrec’s studies of Parisian performers. Though informal in nature Toulouse-Lautrec’s portraits, like those of Bubaš, depict individuals used to living their lives in the public eye.
