According to Lehmann Maupin, "Hernan Bas [...] explores the codes of dandyism and its subculture as a means to define sexual attraction. His paintings are tinged with nihilist romanticism, born of literary intrigue and a passion for historical painting. Small, frail and sensuously delightful, Bas's paintings personify epic romance embracing both the decadence and nastiness of pleasure. " Bas' work are called "tapestry paintings" because he is inspired by Medieval wall tapestries.
