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: Cropsey Autumn landscape

Posted by Charley Parker at 9:20 pm

Autumn on Greenwood Lake, Jasper Francis Cropsey

On Google Cultural Institute: Art Project. Use zoom controls in right side of image. Original is in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

Today is the Autumnal Equinox, and marks the beginning of Autumn (at least here in the Northern Hemisphere). The day and night are equal in length, and all’s right with the world — at least out on Greenwood Lake in Cropsey’s beautifully atmospheric landscape.

    The painting is a gift of Wells Fargo to the museum. Last week they donated US$150,000 to Colorado flood relief recovery efforts.

    I regard the above-mentioned worth observing.
