That is my favorite so far.(Here's a little Mont Sainte-Victoire story. Picasso worshipped Cezanne. After Picasso had become rich and successful, he calls up his dealer and tells him he "bought Mont Saint-Victoire." The dealer, thinking he bought a Cezanne, asks him "Which one?" Picasso chortles and says, "No, I bought the real Mont Sainte-Victoire!" And apparently he did buy it (or at least part of it) in 1958, and is buried there.)
Thank you, Robert. I hadn't heard that story before. In fact, I didn't even know that Picasso worshipped Cezanne. Or maybe I once knew, but like many things, I have since forgotten. It's been fun getting reacquainted with some of these artists, and I have you & Frank Stack to thank for it (I'm enjoying his endless FB albums of great art).
Lord have mercy woman! I love this one. I love the way you are interpreting the old masters in your self portraits. I love that you're using landscapes.And I love this Van Gogh story. Thanks Mr. Robert.
hadn't heard that story before. In fact, I didn't even know that Picasso worshipped Cezanne. We went to a show with the two of them in Fort Worth. The early years they didn't much like each other but they grew into the relationship over the years.And the painting is a lot of fun, Ina!
These are so interesting! This one is especially beautiful.
