About Hand (Tribute to Ingres)

The artwork “Hand (Tribute to Ingres)” was created by artist Abidin Dino in 1980. This particular work falls under the category of figurative art and is associated with the Surrealism art movement. The title suggests that it is a homage to the neoclassical painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres.

The artwork features a prominently centered hand, but its depiction is somewhat unconventional and stylized, reflective of surrealistic tendencies to distort reality for an emotional or dreamlike effect. The hand is structured in a circular composition, the boundaries of which appear to give it a confined, almost tondo-like form. The fingers and palm are outlined with a soft, almost translucent quality, and there’s a play with light and shadow that adds a three-dimensional feel to the piece. The warm sepia tones and the gradient shading contribute to the overall ethereal and dreamy quality, characteristic of Surrealism’s emphasis on tapping into the subconscious.
