Raoul Dufy in America

i have a folder of paintings by Raoul Dufy on my mac that i look at every now and then, sometimes i set them as my desktop wallpaper… and then i have to set it back to something else because they are just too bright, beautiful and colourful for me to look at…

henri-edmond cross

when you think pointillism your first thought would be seurat – but i’m also infinitely attracted to the works of henri-edmond cross, mostly for his bold palette & dreamy scenes. the pink cloud – 1896


autumn (also known as profile of lydia) (1880) – mary cassatt i’m really feeling autumn & winter today. can you tell? the colours are amazing too, obvs.
