This is an original acrylic painting on canvas by Alfred Gockel. Born near Münster, Germany in 1952, Alfred Gockel’s was only eight when his first work was published. He went on to study at The University of Applied Sciences Münster in the Department of Design. When he finished his studies he went on to be the founder of the publishing company AVANT ART. He started to gain a lot of popularity in the US in 1985 and from then to 2006 more than 130,000,000 open editions of his work was sold. He also has skills in etching, woodworking, and sculpting with multiple mediums. His main inspirations are Picasso, Mirò, Chagall, Dali and Dürer which shows in his dynamic abstract pieces.

Depicted in this piece is a couple with a beautiful waterfront scene in front of them. The use of pairs in the piece from the couple to the fish and boats further portray the feeling of romance. Gockel’s use of a wide variety of the color spectrum creates a beautiful balance in the painting and makes everything seem to glow like the euphoria love brings. The fluid and rigid brushstrokes that vary over the painting gives a nice contrast and pulls the viewers focus to the center of the piece.
