Gauguin. Portrait of a Young Woman. Gorgeousness.
Color! What a deep and mysterious language, the language of dreams.
And more from the great man.
The great artist is a formulation of the greatest intelligence: he is the recipient of sensations which are the most delicate and consequently the most invisible expressions of the brain.
Edvard Munch has given us a lovely portrayal of a seated young girl. Although the face isn’t completely resolved it is a sketch that does capture the energy of the sitter and the moment.
I build a kind of wall between myself and the model so that I can paint in peace behind it. Otherwise, she might say something that confuses and distracts me.
Colour does not add a pleasant quality to design - it reinforces it.
- Pierre Bonnard
