"Victorian elegance" paintings by Alan Maley (1931-1995). His romantic paintings allow the viewer to turn back to the times of rustling atlases and silks, carriage rides to theaters and games on the shore. Meili came from an artistic and talented family and always wanted to be an artist. After studying at the College of Art, Alan Maylie faced a choice - to enter the prestigious Royal Academic School in London or the film industry as an apprentice artist. He chose the brilliant world of cinema and trained as a stage artist, but these studies were suspended when the young man contracted polio. Alan spent a year recovering and learning to walk again. This time was also a decisive turning point in his life, as he realized that he would be physically unable to paint large pictures. A. Meili became an artist of a continuous frame. His talent was recognized by Walt Disney, who invited Alan to America.
