Freedom - God, Country and Liberty, a tribute to America.
was galvanized by the events of September 11th and the spirit that
had remained dormant for too long rose into a force not felt since another
such attack on our homeland in December of 1941. H. Hargrove felt
compelled to contribute whatever he could to our country. "I'm not a poet,
I'm not a singer or composer, Hargrove states. "The only thing I can contribute
is my art. "Freedom" depicts a stormy sky, symbolizing the difficult times
we are living through. A breaking ray of sunlight washes over the
village church in a divine light. A teddy bear in the attic toy chest represents
the warm safe haven of our home. A stream of light through the attic's
eyebrow window casts a glow on our most precious symbols of freedom, "God,
Country and Liberty". This magnificent patriotic painting is available
in a series of 100 giclées 30 x 40 inch on canvas, and 450 signed & numbered
20 x 24 inch giclées on canvas. May God bless America.
Reaching Out - A metaphor for our hearts, a repository of all we hold dear.
the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Hargrove became passionate
about what we as Americans hold dear to us-our values, our freedom,
and our families. One element of "Freedom" has a special appeal for Hargrove:
Lady Liberty, one of the first sights he saw upon his arrival in
America nearly 30 years ago. As the War on Terrorism escalated, Hargrove
felt the need to capture the essence of what America was feeling, what
he himself was feeling. Thus, he returned to his easel to create the beautifully
Out." The painting, a monochrome with only the faintest touches
of color, depicts the Statue of Liberty in an alcove such as one
might see reserved for statuary in a church. Instead of standing tall,
she is on one knee, the torch of freedom cradled on her other knee, her
free hand reaching forward and creating a three-dimensional effect. Her
face seems as stoic as ever, but upon inspection a tear can be seen falling
from one eye. The painting works on many levels. Is the Lady reaching out
for help in America's time of need? Or is she reaching out instead to comfort
Americans in their time of need? Is her tear a manifestation of sorrow
or compassion? Could it be both? Does her place in a marble alcove elevate
her to a kind of secular sainthood? Hargrove does not (or will not) lend
his own interpretation to the scene, leaving it up to each individual observer.
He will only say that creating "Reaching Out" has provided him with a healing
catharsis. Others who have seen the original have expressed the same emotion,
whatever their interpretations. "Reaching Out" is museum-quality art that
speaks to every American. It is poetry for the eyes, poetry to stir the
soul, poetry directly from the heart-the heart of H. Hargrove. "Reaching

Spilled Wine - Let this magnificent painting inspire you.
Hargrove shares his wonderful new painting Spilled Wine and the inspiration for it. "During the ancient times in Italy, it was the custom to spill some wine before dinner. This was an offering to the Roman gods: they served the gods before serving themselves. Of course, this made the gods very happy, and they tended to bless the family, so spilling wine before a meal came to be known as a good luck charm as well as a symbol of sharing. You'll note the wine in Hargrove's painting is from his hometown in Marsala, Italy (In fact, Hargrove is a friend and former schoolmate of the vintner whose wine labels he has duplicated for the painting, Silvio Fratelli.) "Spilled Wine" is available in a limited edition giclee on canvas of only 100 in its original size of 24 by 30 inches and 450 in the popular 20 by 24-inch size. You may order from your local gallery, art representative, or online at www.hhargrove.com. Or Call us at The Hargrove Studio 800-642-1966 And if you happen to be dining out, and the waiter happens to spill some wine, feel free to let him know it's ok and thank him for his good wishes!
A Terrace in Rome - A View to Remember and Enchant.
Limited edition gicleé Diptych (set of two) on canvas In the painting on the left, the focal point is the buildings across from the Tiber (or Tevere in Italian): the Trattoria Sul Tevere, a casual riverfront restaurant; a pizzeria whose name suggests that its pies are fit for a king (Dei Castelli, "from the castle".) The companion painting focuses on the Tiber itself as it flows under an arched bridge. The Gelateria promises a bonanza of the famous Italian ice cream, gelato, while next door the Ristorante Trastevere promises a more upscale dining experience. "This is the view that I remember," says Hargrove, and it is a view that will enchant any art collector who has ever been to Europe-or who has always wanted to go. Available in a limited edition of 450 image size 20x24 giclee on canvas and 30 artist proofs each. For information on a dealer in your area or to place an order please call The H. Hargrove Gallery 732.736.1800 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org Originals available $8,000 each.
- Hargrove's masterful impressionistic blend of light, color and reflection.
Absorb yourself in the mirror like reflections from the azure colored sky, the soft sun-bleached stucco buildings in shades of cream and sienna and the tree lined banks cast across the gentle ripples of the river. A bottle of French wine, a loaf of crusty bread and Brie and now you've been transported into the beauty of the French countryside. La Fromagerie is available in a limited edition giclee on canvas, size 30x40 & 20x24.
