In Henry VIII of England oil painting the Master of Abstract conveys the sense of drama and action through the complex and vibrant canvas texture, done with gestural, loose brushwork and intensive palette. The Henry VIII of England canvas becomes the substance the artist uses to ‘create’ the image. The brush can touch the surface delicately, or attack it with a swiping gesture, leaving tangible furrow-like traces. In order to amplify the sense of contradiction, the artist captures those bold, improvisational brushstrokes within the clear, well-thought outlines of stylish drawing. The oil painting title Henry VIII of England creates the bridge between the artist's artwork and the viewer, giving the key to the interpretation of the canvas image. The artist welcomes the reality into his paintings. If our vision can grasp landscapes and faces in the accident blots, the same way it can ‘deconstruct,’ eliminate the integrity of an object’s image. Gheorghe Virtosu’s Henry VIII of England oil painting proves the connection between Objective and Abstract. That purified natural form becomes the basic artistic material for the artist. The painter doesn’t copy the natural forms but rather follows their dynamics and movement. Sudden twists of the line, compositional pauses, coloristic bursts are consonant with the natural processes of creation. The artist blurs the borders between narrative and non-narrative art, asking us “What is the reality, if not one of the most abstract things in the world?”
 
He is largely remembered as a bully who executed his opponents, oversaw the destruction of religious buildings and works of art, and killed off two of his six wives.
