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.

Mother Nursing Her Child

Mother Nursing Her Child (Aline [wife] and Pierre [first child]), 1886, Pierre-Auguste Renoir


The years between 1884 and 1887 are known as the "Dry Period" in the artist's life, and most critics at the time thought that he had gone astray.
This crisis, however, was not just an individual matter. It affected not only Renoir, but also Monet, Pissaro and Degas and finally led to a complete collapse of this group of Impressionists
quoted from Peter Feist's Renoir
