Congratulations to Michael Dumas, Named “A Contemporary Art Master”

ArtTour International Magazine has just released a special edition featuring the Top 60 Masters of Contemporary Art chosen for 2013. Michael Dumas’ masterwork, Influx - Sparrows in the Louvre, shown above, graces the front cover. Dumas was also given the premiere position of being the first artist presented inside with four additional pages dedicated to his incredible artwork. (See )

The special edition was recently unveiled in Italy during Florence Design Week, May 20 – 26, an international event to enhance and preserve the city’s historical and cultural heritage.
More than 5,500 artists submitted work for consideration from which the top 60 were selected. ArtTour International curator Viviana Puello said the special edition was “a celebration of years of work and dedication in the lives of a group of individuals that have turned their passion into their careers.…[W]hen the creator gives himself over completely and surrenders to love, the painter becoming one with the canvas …That is how masters work and how masterpieces are created, more often than not; the masterpiece outlives the master and remains as a testament to the miracle that once took place, when creation brought to life a creator and when the creator produced what the world considers a precious gift.”

Hailed by art lovers, ArtTour International covers the art scene throughout Europe and the Americas. It offers an international platform for professional and emerging artists by showcasing the finest contemporary art. Its more than two million online subscribers and 50,000 readers of the printed publication include collectors, buyers, dealers, critics and art galleries in 64 countries.
