The Ball. Gaston la Touche (French, 1854-1913). Oil on cradled panel.
Although the art of an earlier century inspired la Touche’s subjects, his painting technique was thoroughly modern: his friends Bracquemond and Manet, the latter of whom included him in his Bar at the Folies Bergère, advised him. The present work is an excellent example of his approach: groups of dancers are painted in thin strokes of soft color over a burnt sienna ground. The result is an image that is at once delicate and rich.

in case you need some encouragement today, IT’S ONE DAY CLOSER TO AUTUMN. one day closer to jeans and boots and scarves and sweaters and beautiful trees and frost on the grass and actually wanting to go outside and cooler temperatures and happiness.
