Title: Island Life
Size: Oil on Canvas "36 X 48"
Acclaimed American Painter in the French Impressionist Style (1914 -2002)
She always began painting the eyes because she believed that is where you find their character.
"Everything has feeling, has heart. Too much logic destroys Art"
She greeted each day as a fresh canvas, anxious to leave her mark in a flash of color.
Artist, Jade Pasteur, saw beauty in every facet of her life. Proficient in painting, sculpture acting, and dance, over the years Pasteur honed her gifts and passion for French Impressionism into a collection of uniquely American fine art, portraits, and murals.
During her career she was commissioned by leading families (such as the Vanderbelts) as well as for larger scale community projects such as murals in community centers, hospitals and restaurants (predominantly on the East Coast).
Her work can be found in private collections around the world and has been exhibited in fine museums and galleries including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Argent Gallery, and the National Academy of Design.
From the late 40's through the 50's Jade Pasteur's Paintings were selling at a significant market value of $400-$500.
For sometime Jade Pasteur's body of work remained in private collections, and only now has become more available to art collectors at large.
