Clifford Bailey (originals)
I Wished On The Moon
OIL original on canvas stretched
48 x 30 x 2 in


Internationally renowned and a passionately original artist, Clifford Bailey's paintings evoke the era and ambiance of the roaring twenties, but with a modern twist; from his portraits of musicians in fine-tailored suits to his sparse and dramatic street scenes, jazz, jazz bands & nightlife, his recognizable style is unique and his work continues to be admired and acquired by collectors around the world. There are current artists whom Clifford politely and generously comments have been influenced by his work over the years and there is no doubt when you have a Clifford Bailey work--its the real deal.

Of his style and influences, Bailey says, "I think there's a little bit of a showman in me that has some flamboyance. My influences? Schiele, Klimt, Toulouse Lautrec, Modigliani and then Mad magazine and Walt Disney mixed in. The list goes on and on. Even abstract artists like Franz Kline. He especially had a big effect on me with his use of black. And those early Japanese prints of warriors with grimacing faces -- that bass player I paint so often with that smile is my samurai warrior."

Clifford Bailey originals and giclees are available exclusively in Santa Fe, NM at POP Gallery.
