Birds of Prey Silhouette Series

Egg tempera - Tempera (Italian: [ˈtɛmpera]), also known as egg tempera, is a permanent, fast-drying painting medium consisting of colored pigments mixed with a water-soluble binder medium, usually glutinous material such as egg yolk. Tempera also refers to the paintings done in this medium.

This is an exclusive opportunity for the serious collector.

Completed in 1992; we are proud to offer the 'Birds of Prey Silhouette Series' each rendering is a 24" X 18" image of a lustrous water color sky in the  background with the image of a single prolific American fighter in flight and heading off into the sunset with the exception of the stealth bomber image depicting duel bombers. The silhouettes  are arranged in a manner that is virtually as they would appear under these lighting and visibility conditions.  

Images are titled in style with bold calligraphy lettering identifying each of the  planes depicted.  John decided to commemorate a select few of our nation's historic air machines. These 'egg tempera' originals are labeled, signed and dated by the late artist.

The John Simonis Gallery is offering this complete ensemble for the retail price of 1500.00 $$ for the five piece set.

Meanwhile if the collector wishes to purchase any one of these rare works individually the asking retail price is 400.00 $$
