“Creating idyllic scenes with a distinctly feminine flair.”
– Candace Lovely

One of the most populated collections in Candace Lovely’s vast (and growing) body of work, Fair Women is also the most representative of the Lovely’s voice and artistic style. Prominently known for “creating idyllic scenes with a distinctly feminine flair,” Lovely is well within her element as she paints this theme, rife with New England porches, seaside pastels, and romanticized scenes and settings.

Her love of this genre is evident in the joy and breadth of the related imagery. As always, she incorporates an eclectic variety of paintings while tying them solidly together with common threads – or rather ribbon: Woven throughout her work are copious and lavishly flowing bows, covering her signature white dresses or trailing from wide-brimmed hats. While most pieces are serene, enchanting, and the very definition of “Lovely,” Fair Women is also where the artist also exercises some of her more alluring and evocative figures in pieces like “Volcano” and one of her most intricate self-portraits “Candace being Candlish on Canvas.”

Lovely originally established this collection as “a rehearsed theme that captures the feminine side of the American psyche, laying down the standards of beauty, morality, and truth, while uplifting the human spirit and refining the mind with the charms of love.” This is where Lovely utterly thrives, embracing with abandon the freedom that comes with creating what she knows.
