Mon-Sat 10am to 5pm


Artifex Studio
1948 Lehigh Ave., Unit D, Glenview, IL 60025 - (Lehigh Ave. and Glenview Rd.)

Original oil paintings and glass work.

Elisa R. Boughner was born in the United States, raised in Mexico and studied art in America and Europe. Her work reflects the influence of each of these cultures, and of a range of painting styles from the Impressionists, through the German Expressionists, and finally the Cubist. The result is a unique and highly personal style that brings extraordinary vibrance to often ordinary subjects.

Boughner uses traditional forms such as still life, but animates them through bold, often unconventional color and dynamic brushwork. By using often densely layered colors she achieves a complex, subtle and wide emotional range that transforms studies of external surfaces into exposes of internal feeling. The contrast between her objective subject matter and subjective treatment generates a creative dissonance that brings the paintings richly to life.

Boughner uses the bright colors characteristic of Mexican painting, but employs them in the viscerally communicative fashion of the Expressionists. Her palette is often innovative, sometimes subversive, achieving striking complements and juxtapositions. Her intuitive, almost tactile use of color and form speaks a highly personal artistic language, one that communicates directly and eloquently with the viewer.

The 50 Year Standard:
after all shouldn't antiques be old? We use our staff and external appraisers to review merchandise. We actively remove items that are proven not to be at least 50 years old.

Reproductions & Fakes:
the curse of the Antiques Business! We actively search for and remove items that could mislead an uninformed buyer. Our staff will freely offer advice and guidance. We are always learning and hope our customers and dealers will help the Antiques Industry develop a deeper level of knowledge and commitment to authenticity.

Quality Merchandise:
the single most important factor in repeat buying. We use independent appraisers to monitor the merchandise offered. Our dealers are asked to remove items of questionable quality, authenticity or age.

Pleasing & Stimulating Environment:
the setting should demonstrate creative uses for antiques. Dealer Friendly Service: a commitment by our staff to "Dealer Delight".
