Oil painting description


Female Samurai Warrior. Painted 2016 to 2017 by Moldovan-born British artist, Gheorghe Virtosu, b. 1968. Oil on canvas, 79 cm high by 74 cm wide. 31 X 29 inches.

She had “long black hair and a fair complexion, and her face was very lovely; moreover she was a fearless rider, whom neither the fiercest horse nor the roughest ground could dismay, and so dexterously did she handle sword and bow that she was a match for 1,000 warriors, fit to meet either god or devil.”

A central aspect of Gheorghe Virtosu's Female Samurai Warrior is action. Our figure here is the embodiment of rapid motion as the oscillating lines within the figure are reminiscent of the adept sweeps of a sword in combat. In the estuary excavated under the chin figure and ground substitute each other and interlock as if to signal the stealthiness of the warrior – the ability to conceal herself and thus alternate between the appearance of the object and that of the ground.
