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.

Die Schomollende

Die Schomollende, Antoine Watteau

I followed the Wikipedia link for more info about Antoine Watteau and found this picture is called 'la boudeuse'. Babelfish says this means 'sulky person'. Babelfish, however, either could not or would not, translate 'schomollende', which I assume means more or less the same as 'boudeuse'. I am, therefore, puzzled as to the reason for the German title. Meanwhile, I'm off to get my little German dictionary. (Wish me luck.)
