SARASOTA, Fla., April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sarasota artist and children's book author/illustrator Bobette Stanbridge has just released an important work of art series depicting American Culture in the 20th Century by decades. The series is now available on her website www.thebobetteartco.com.
"My goal is to get the Decade Series into schools nationwide to bring our cultural history at a glance for our future generations to understand the great things we as American's created at a very prolific time in our history," said Stanbridge. The original art was produced on 4' x 6' Masonite panels with oil paints and will be available as limited edition giclees and posters in two sizes May 5th, 2014.
Each painting includes exact replicated images of the time period creating a real sense of how it was. The images originally in black and white are painted in color to give composition and a balanced flow. Each central figure in the paintings is named. The first decade was named America after Stanbridge heard a voice in her head calling her Amy Erica. The second is 'Scout' for the Boy and Girl Scout organizations that were then formed and the third is 'Sophie' who was her chosen image of the roaring 20's. The fourth painting was originally a picture of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers but was changed to Edward and Betty because of their heirs.
