This impressionistic landscape is striking today with its bold use of colour and form. Yet, it had an even greater impact at the turn of the century. The over-stated colour choices and loose representation of the Pont-Aven landscape offered new ideas on the use of colour in these modern-day paintings.
The Musee d'Orsay is celebrating this work of art in a show subtitled “A prophecy of colour”. This is a brilliant chance to see this work up close and really study those colour choices from a modern perspective.
The show starts in the new year and runs through Spring until April 28th.
