A Reverse Oil Painting on Glass
Reverse oil painting on glass – an art technique through which the artist paints a painting on the reverse side of a glass surface. Reverse paintings are extremely challenging to do well since – in painting a face, for example – the artist must first paint the pupil of an eye on the glass before painting the iris. This is exactly the opposite of how one normally paints a painting. The artist will not be able to go back and change or correct anything done earlier since the surface between the glass and the paint already applied is no longer accessible at all. An artist in Poland who specializes in religious art painted this and many other reverse oil paintings on glass. The elderly mother of the artist enclosed each of these beautiful paintings in a handmade frame with a leather back. Every icon is unique in detail, color and depiction.

Each icon is a true one-of-a-kind original work of art. Colors and depiction will vary, sometimes significantly. We are happy to email you images of what is currently available. Please contact us.
