Blue roses (Betty the barmaid) Theme: Cities & Suburbs

Artist: James FARDOULYS
Birth/Death: 1900–1975

Title: Blue roses (Betty the barmaid)

Like many naive artists, Fardoulys only began to paint seriously when he retired from his job. He portrays the world as a wondrous place, and the bar in which Betty stands, gladioli in hand, is as verdant as the Garden of Eden.
