More About Luis Royo
One of the world's foremost book cover and movie poster artists, Luis Royo's growing following in the US just keeps his crativity switched on!
First, I hate when I watch a book here at full price & finally decide to go ahead and buy it,then it drops to 32% off as this one has when I recieve it, read it, & it's time to rate or review it. *sighs* On with my review . . . This thin book briefly chronicles Royo's commission to paint a gentleman's modern Russian castle's dome with 45 life-size nude women. (Think Michaelangelo's Sistine Chapel on a much smaller---though still large--scale with Royo's sapphoric/lesbian sex-themed erotic Prohibited series' content.) The only males are three cloaked & hooded voyeurs in one panel, one of whom is definately Royo and the others may be his son, who helped his father all those months to execute this arduous project, and the owner of the dome. The text is brief but sufficient to basically explain major stages of the project. The photographs consist of his studio pre-work; his dome transfers; his dome paintings-in-progress; pieces of his final works; then the dome itself. I would have liked to have seen each panel have its own picture in the end and read more details about the execution of such a long & complicated project. This book is obviously not like his others due to the content, but it is a nice book about a wonderful project for a great artist of our time.
