As it gets chillier here in New York, we are constantly looking for reminders of those gloriously sunny summer days. Nina Nolte’s series of strikingly colorful paintings, titled The Best is yet to Come, features poolside scenes reminiscent of summer in another era. Clad in vibrant turbans and swimwear, the women in her portraits wade in the water, casually smoking, drinking, and tanning their pale bodies, and evoke nostalgia not just for summer, but also for the glamorous lifestyles of the past. Based on photographic imagery, Nolte’s works depict women who are confident, alluring, and effortlessly chic. She paints with such a realism that truly makes us long for more time spent by the pool, cocktail in hand.
