New Book on the Miniature Paintings of Wes & Rachelle Siegrist Now Available
Exquisite Miniatures by Wes & Rachelle Siegrist features the tiny and intricate watercolors by this American team of miniature painters alongside essays on the history of the genre and relevant quotes from history and the Siegrists.
By: Wes Siegrist
Wes and Rachelle Siegrist are an American husband and wife team who mesmerize viewers with miniature paintings so exquisitely crafted that they are often mistaken for tiny photographs. Their tiny treasures, as collectors often refer to them, typically measure less than 9 square inches and appear even more detailed when viewed under magnification!
Wes and Rachelle Siegrist are members of the Miniature Artists of America, the
Miniature Art Society of Florida, the Miniature Painters, Sculptors & Gravers Society of Washington, D.C., the Cider Painters of America, and the Hilliard Society of England. They are the authors of the world’s first standard definition of miniature art adopted by the Association of Miniature Artists. It is a small wonder, therefore, that the Siegrists are referred to as “World Ambassadors for Miniature Art.”
The release of the book will precede a solo museum exhibition by the Siegrists: Under the Magnifying Glass: Exquisite Miniatures by Wes & Rachelle Siegrist will premiere at the prestigious R.W. Norton Art Gallery, in Shreveport, LA from May 4 through July 25, 2010. The Norton Art Gallery is home to one of the great museum miniature collections in the United States. Exquisite Miniatures is produced by David J. Wagner, L.L.C., with company President, David J. Wagner, Ph.D., serving as Curator/Tour Director.
