Nude

In the Kunsthalle in Hamburg I visited an exhibition showing the works of Felix Vallotton. I hadn't heard of him before I must admit, but that guy sure can paint! This French painter was closely associated with the Nabis group, which also included artists like Pierre Bonnard and Eduard Vuilard amongst others. In his day and age, late 19th and early 20th century, his painting were thought of as highly provocatve, because of the many nudes and unsettling way of how he painted them. His paintings seem cool and controlled, leaving out details which makes his art so unsettling. I will make a little series of this great painter, starting of with todays painting 'Nude".

kind regards, Gerard Boersma
