Rosemary Vasquez Tuthill
My name is Rosemary Vasquez Tuthill - the daughter of Emigdio Vasquez. I initially learned about art by observing and working with my father in painting mediums including oil, acrylic, water color, and pencil art; and later in college with many art classes. Today, I paint Commissioned Art and original still life, landscape, portraits, murals, and commercial art oil paintings influenced by Old Masters techniques in a Contemporary style. And, I started a series of portraits titled, "Portraits of Influence", which highlights influential political figures, scientists, business people, visionaries, and others that have influenced aspects of society.
My style is much like my father’s but with a feminine touch. I strive to have different effects for different types of paintings. For example, my still-life paintings are influenced by David A. Leffel, and my portraits by John Singer Sargent. I like to paint in convincing detail that sometimes requires painting with a magnifying glass and a paintbrush with just a few bristles. It is very gratifying to me when people look at my paintings, smile, and seem to immerse themselves in the paintings.
I have displayed my art in many galleries and museums, created portraits from vintage photographs, painted landscapes and cityscapes from my travels, and designed still-life layouts in my studio. Often people respond to my paintings saying, "That's amazing!"
Emigdio Vasquez was an American - Chicano artist who was born in Jerome, Arizona and lived and painted in North Orange County, California where he painted over 400 oil works and 32 murals. Emigdio's paintings have hung in galleries, the residence of a US Ambassador to Rome, Italy, and in many homes. Emigdio's paintings reflect his views of everyday life, socio-economics, and interest with street scenes through portraits, still life images, and murals. He was a master artist with his use of color and gritty style creating a sense of time along with his applications of lighting, shadows, layers, and layout. His painting style reflects his studies ranging from the Old Masters to the Ashcan muralists/artists of the early 20th Century.
Emigdio was subject of many articles and interviews that explored his viewpoints and artistic approaches. However, Emigdio characterized himself when he was quoted as saying, “I consider myself a social realist painter because I like to paint the world that I perceive around me - an environment constructed of human and urban experiences of working class people. Through my art, I want to convey a powerful sense of the human struggle for dignity within the urban experience of 20th Century America."
