Classic religious paintings of the Madonna and Child using traditional renaissance painting techniques are seldom seen outside of museums or churches. These paintings are laboriously created over a period of months using up to a dozen translucent oil layers that provide a glowing depth to the paintings. Many are finished in 22k gold leaf. These paintings are devotional works of art by artist Jose Robles, as he keeps Christ in Christmas, and helps us all celebrate the beauty of classic art that touches our soul.

Jose Antonio Robles was born in Lima, Peru in 1972 and currently resides in Northern Virginia. He graduated from the National School of Fine Arts in Peru where he studied painting and sculpture. During his years as a student, he was drawn to and inspired by the works of the grand colonial teachers and paintings of the Cuzco School, a Roman Catholic European classical artistic tradition, which was based in Cusco,Peru (the former capital of the Inca Empire) during the Colonial Period, in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. He began his professional career as an artist in the church working an art restorer and conservator, preserving 16th and 17th century paintings.

As a painter who takes to heart the teachings and methods of the Cuzco School, he dedicates himself to the preservation and ideals of Latin-American classical painting. His eye for detail and uniqueness of expression is visible in his oil paintings of Madonna and child, angels, and saints.

Still Life Gallery Fine Art & Custom Framing is proud to present a collection of paintings by Mr. Robles, ranging in size from 8” x 10” to 28” x 22”, several of which feature cedar frames hand-carved by the artist and glided in 22K gold leaf.

Mr. Robles also does paintings on commission as well as murals.
