He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

Eye Candy for Today: Koekkoek Winter Landscape

Posted by Charley Parker at 7:29 pm

Winter Landscape, Holland, Barend Cornelis Koekkoek

I love these Dutch genre paintings that show folks walking, playing, skating and otherwise engaging in business as usual, particularly on frozen waterways, in the dead of Winter.

In the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Click “Fullscreen” and zoom or download.

    This blog is one that I follow almost on a daily basis. I admire most of the posts in silence, but now I just can’t resist making a comment. That’s Charlie Chaplin on skates in the last picture!
    Thanks for a great blog!
