About the piece
In this beautifully serene image, Arian's sensitivity to the naturalness of his human subjects captures a seemingly ordinary, yet precious interaction between two young siblings. True to his elegant style of Romantic Realism, the artist draws one into this peaceful scene on the banks of the Mississippi River as a loving sister delights in sharing the scriptures with her brother while he fishes in view of the great landmark that is the Nauvoo Temple.
This extraordinary print exemplifies why Arian's paintings hold such universal appeal: his intuitive style speaks to the very qualities that define both the family and the human condition. It is no wonder, then, that his works are so highly regarded in the art world. This print would make a wonderful addition to any family home and would surely be treasured as an heirloom by future generations.
Romantic Realist painter Arian is most well known for his Classical and traditional American images. His works are a reflection of his artistic passion and deep spiritual awareness, and as a result are deeply intuitive in nature. The subjects of his paintings seem so natural that one feels momentarily transported into their world, making his work both timeless and global, peaceful and personally inviting.
