Painter Irena Polanec spent most of her creative life in Paris. In this city she created a cycle of paintings called Eva. It is dedicated to a woman and successfully exhibited in many capitals of the world. In this cycle, the painter preserves the Renaissance tradition through the nostalgic rendering of female faces. With gilding and symbols like apples and mussels Irena Polanec gives a convincing illusion of preciousness and eternity of life.
