The extensive work of Thailand's elusive artist-princess, HSH Princess Marsi Sukhumbhand Paribatra, will be shown in a rare exhibition to be held from Jan 18 to Feb 26 at the Queen's Gallery.
Organised by the Princess Marsi Paribatra Foundation, the exhibition titled "L'art de Marsi" will highlight an extensive collection of the princess' work as well as six paintings from the private collection of Her Majesty the Queen graciously on loan from Bang Pa-in Palace in Ayutthaya and Vimarnmek Palace in Bangkok. The royally-commissioned pieces include two royal portraits of HM the Queen, and a series of four paintings under the theme "Seasons".
The work of Princess Marsi is unique in its figurative style, full of intricate details, imaginary half-man half-animal creatures that are like fairytales yet offer a deep philosophical reflection on life and death.
