Claude Monet | Color Quotes

"The point is to know how to use the colors, the choice of which is, when all’s said and done, a matter of habit".

"Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment".
"Il colore è la mia ossessione, gioia e tormento per tutto il giorno".

"I haven’t yet managed to capture the color of this landscape; there are moments when I’m appalled at the colors I’m having to use, I’m afraid what I’m doing is just dreadful and yet I really am understating it; the light is simply terrifying".

Paul Gauguin su van Gogh: "Oh! sì, l'ha amato il giallo il buon Vincent.."

da Paul Gauguin - Gli scritti di un selvaggio, 1894
(due anni dopo la morte di Vincent van Gogh)

- "Fu ad Arles, dopo richieste insistenti, che andai a trovare Vincent Van Gogh.
Voleva fondare "L’Atelier du Midi" che io avrei dovuto dirigere.
Questo povero olandese era entusiasta e in preda a una singolare eccitazione.
Leggendo "Tartarin de Tarascon" sognava un mezzogiorno straordinario da dipingere in getti di luce. E sulla tela i suoi gialli violenti inondavano di sole le fattorie e tutta la pianura della Camargue.

...Nella mia stanza gialla alcuni fiori solari e dagli occhi porpora spiccano su di un fondo giallo. Bagnano le radici in una brocca gialla, sopra un tavolo giallo.
In un angolo del quadro la firma: Vincent.
E il sole giallo, attraverso la tenda gialla della mia stanza, inonda di oro questa festa floreale; al mattino dal mio letto, quando mi sveglio, quasi ne sento il profumo.

Paul Gauguin - Van Gogh mentre dipinge girasoli, 1888

John Keats | Fantasia / Fantasy

Lascia sempre vagare la fantasia,
È sempre altrove il piacere:
E si scioglie, solo a toccarlo, dolce,
Come le bolle quando la pioggia picchia;
Lasciala quindi vagare, lei, l'alata.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir | Paysage du Midi, 1905

An exquisite example of Renoir’s mature landscapes, Paysage du Midi depicts the sun-drenched terrain of the South of France to superb effect.
Within the present work, a woman adorned in summery white stands amidst a cluster of leafy trees, whilst the vibrant blue sea can be glimpsed in the background.
Renoir adored the South of France, and spent an increasing amount of time there before moving permanently to the area in 1902.
Having suffered from the effects of rheumatoid arthritis prior to his move to the south, Renoir found the warmth and sunlight of this more benign climate beneficial to his health, and produced some of the most charming and attractive landscapes of his entire career from the mid-1890s onwards.
