stand back from the computer to get the full appreciation of this exquisite painting...love those rich textures.
This one reminds me of Renoir, with this way of giving a slightly blurred impression and of using a pastel pallet. A wonderful show about Renoir is currently beginning in Paris (Grand Palais).
Quite simply: made my mouth water.
Hi Julian What I like about this painting is that it it foregrounds the shape and texture of the lemon, oyster and cloth in a manner that is real and sensual AND very painterly. So the artist is deliberatley there in the brushstrokes, but the image is defined with enough clarity so that I wish I was there to eat the oyster with the lemon (and I wish I could see the Renoir show, Alain.
Hi Julian I have no idea why you received 3 comments. B
