This limited edition giclee on canvas titled, "Romance Dance" was created by Peruvian artist, Tadeo Zavaleta.
Zavaleta seeks to emphasize human nature. The human form is evident in almost every piece he produces because the artist believes human forms are the height of all emotion and sensitivity. His intimate compositions are filled with intertwined lovers and animated musicians all portrayed in vivid colors with expressive brushstrokes. Zavaleta's imagery of lovers speak of passion, harmony and contentment and his musicians seek to harmonize the internal soul with their external music.
The artist has signed this piece on the face of the canvas. This image was published in a small, numbered edition of 195 examples on canvas. The canvas measures 18"h x 18"w. The framed dimensions are 23"h x 23"w.
