The summer holiday is an artwork belonging to Rie Kono’s collection.
The summer holiday is in England. A thirties dream, in an aristocratic environment, where everyone shows their car. The cars are a sign of wealth and well-being. People who talk or simply rest on the grass of an English lawn. Here is this the catalyst element, the English environment: elegant, snobbish. The protagonists play various sports: tennis, golf or cycling or are softly relaxed under a tree. Others are comfortably sitting in a car reading the newspaper. All immersed in a relaxed, serene atmosphere. Here, the hot air balloon appears too, but it is almost passing, it is not the main element. The artist has dedicated his attention to people, to their behaviors and to their attitudes. The acrylic on canvas technique leaves no room for errors, uncertainties, everything is perfect and meticulously cared for. Like in every Rie Kono’s artwork.
