collecting colours over a cup of coffee...

If you are a lover of printed words, you would know how much of your time is taken by books alone. Then one day, sooner or later, you discover a huge vacuum within that you know next to nothing about other art forms. This blog is an attempt to fulfil one such lacunae in the art of painting. We intend to look up a random painting and upload it with a link here every day whilst having our daily cuppa coffee. In this way at least we hope to be better acquainted with colours, colourers and the schools than what we are now.If you wish to be a part, you know where to shout.

Escaping Criticism

Escaping Criticism, Pere Borrell del Caso.


Whether Caso was a one hit wonder artist or whether his artworks are unavailable on the web, I don't know. It is with immense regret I write that I am unable to find a link on Caso's life and/or other works.
