Blue Dish with Apples

"Blue Dish with Apples", 10 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board
This is another painting done with more or less free brushstrokes. I have remembered for many years Henrich Wolfflin's Principles of Art History from my college days. It is an analytical study that I mainly remember being about the difference between the linear and painterly styles of painting--the difference between Durer and Rembrandt, for example. I recently got a copy to read again--and found it to be much more comprehensive and dense than I had remembered! But the impact that it had on my thinking as a 20 year old has stayed with me for my whole life.

Purchase this unframed painting.
Contact me if you would like to purchase a plein air frame.
