[via Old Paint]
Beautiful. I couldn’t help being reminded of one of my favourite Swiss-Italian paintings: Le Cattive Madri by Giovanni Segantini, 1894:
I find it somewhat upsetting to talk to non-mountain folks about this painting since it seems that they never share my passion for it, for the way the light hits the mountains of the Savognin and how this (painted!) light gives you an immediate sensation of the precise temperature and the extreme silence that reigned supreme there and then, so anyways, I stopped talking about it altogether.
It’s too epic for words anyways.
