Vincent Van Gogh
‘Terrace of a café at night (Place du Forum)’
Oil on Canvas
1888
_
Kröller Müller Museum
@krollermullermuseum
_
Van Gogh had intended to make a nocturnal painting for some time. And not one in the conventional manner, in shades of black and grey, but actually with an abundance of colours. Equally unconventional is that he paints this gas-lit terrace of a café in Arles in situ and in the dark, because colours have a different appearance during the day than by night.

Edouard Manet
‘Knife Grinder, Rue Mosnier’
Oil on Canvas
1878
_
Philadelphia Museum of Art
@philamuseum
_
Manet painted this quickly brushed picture of a French knife grinder while in his studio overlooking the Rue Mosnier, now the Rue de Berne, in Paris. The artist frequently depicted the myriad passersby he could see on the street below. The composition of this work is notable: there are vivid horizontals on the street and sidewalk, diagonals that frame the sidewalk and fade to a vanishing point, and a balancing vertical in the street lamp.

Wassily Kandinsky
‘Two Riders and Reclining Figures’
Oil on Millboard
1909-1910
_

When Kandinsky painted ‘Two Riders and Reclining Figure’ (Zwei Reiter und liegende Gestalt) in 1909-10, he was reconciling this new metaphysical aesthetic with his existing predilection for depicting symbolic motifs and Russian-inspired iconography.  The mounted rider, for example, is understood to be the symbol of the Christian dragon slayer, St. George.  One can readily decipher his arms, outstretched in opposite directions, as he leaps over the hills with his horse.  The sleeping figure along the bottom left edge is understood to be the symbol of introspection and imagination, which were both characteristics that Kandinsky valued very highly in his art.  In the preliminary watercolor and drawing  from 1909, the artist sketched in these central figures of the composition, concentrating primarily on their forms and spatial arrangement.  When he arrived at the final composition, his focus was much more explicitly on color.  The two sets of horses and riders and the reclining figure are less characters than they are colored contours, harmonizing with the flow of the blues, vermilion, saffron and bright yellow that swirl around the composition.

Sheila Hicks is a celebrated artist, known for her innovative use of weaving and textiles and her sculptural installations made of yarn. Her work ranges from small wall hangings, to enormous site-specific installations, and critics frequently locate her art at the intersection of decorative objects and fine art—though the artist herself in uninterested in the distinction.

The "things the mind already knows" were his ideal subject because of the host of varied meanings each carried with it. This fostered the perceptual ambiguity and semiotic play at the heart of his works. (Via: theartstory.org) ...

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
‘A Montrouge

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec ‘A Montrouge"–Rosa La Rouge’ Oil on Canvas 1886-1887 _ On View The Barnes Foundation @barnesfoundation _ Toulouse-Lautrec sought to show the underbelly of glamorous Parisian society. Here the model Carmen Gaudin poses as the prostitute Rosa La Rouge, a seedy and murderous character popularized by the songs of the cabaret performer Aristide Bruant. This painting once hung in Bruant's nightclub, Le Mirliton, in the Montmartre neighborhood of Paris. Toulouse-Lautrec paints Carmen with flaming red hair covering her face. Her jaw, which juts out, conveys her surly nature. (Via: @barnesfoundation ) ...
