"Park Scene" (After Monticelli)
Vincent van Gogh called Adolphe Monticelli the greatest colorist who ever
lived, next to Delacroix. Vincent regarded his work as a continuation of
Monticelli. He and Theo owned several of Monticelli's paintings. He painted
with thick impastos with bits of strong color, buried in the paint. I love
his color, and also his style of simplification of the human figure. The
detail is rough and simple. It has a sufficient amount of detail, so that
the people look like people and interact with each other. His style lends
itself to small figure paintings. I learn to eliminate unnecessary detail,
while still retaining the basic elements that make the people, people. The dog is my friend Joe's Doberman, Little Bit.
