The Painted Lady

Often when I am working on a painting, I find myself thinking about art that I have seen and enjoy. So it was this evening with this painting, which prompted me to reflect on two paintings in particular: one by the French Fauve painter Maurice de Vlaminck (below) and another by the Russian born German Expressionist Alexej Jawlensky (further below). I've already referenced the painting by Vlaminck in the post dated Monday 23rd May entitled "La Sirène or The Model in Black Lingerie".
