Rafael Cusi’s Sepia Nude 

“Master of Watercolour Paintings”

by Jennifer Bichara

Sepia nude watercolour painting is a monochromatic study of a woman fusing the principles of figurative expressionism highlighting the deepest emotions while using only one colour to effectively express it. The seated model with her back to the viewer depicted from the high angle, looking sideways upon the figure.

Rafael Cusi’s sepia nude signifies primal emotion that is a core expressionistic theme of this artwork. Cusi’s brushstrokes drive the viewer to experience the bodily gestures, postures, and facial expressions communicating essential seductive state of being.

Rafael Cusi – Sepia Nude Watercolor on Paper 2009

The sepia nude renderings of a human figure capturing not so much the figurative but thoughts, sensations, and touches. This sepia-toned piece expresses ideas of human vulnerability in its sensuous form. This is a visual dialogue between form and figuration and between space and pigment falls in the category of classicism and contemporary art.

Rafael Cusi’s monochromatic nude sepia is a mightily kinesthetic. As you stare at the piece you can feel your own limbs edging toward the woman’s often position. This naked subject is in conversation with her unfurnished surround, sepia brown-madder brushstrokes flowing and occupying and nudging the bareness of the background. The old world feeling of this sepia watercolor is perfectly suited for every art aficionados.
