For some reason I really like the work of little known artist George Hann. This is one of his, of the Champs Elysees

Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

Don't drag this out again, it caused enough problems the last time. And questioning the tastes of others for not liking what you like is hardly a sign of maturity in itself.

If this is some case of butthurt over my comments in your digirapture threads, please take it elsewhere.

I had no idea anyone asked this question before...I don't remember doing it certainly, and it's a legitimate question considering the material...I don't have any problems with 11 year olds posting, so by all means continue.

I just had to look up who you are on the"digirapture" question, I didn't even remember you although now I see what you're talking about, I don't think you've ever said anything compelling enough to remember on the issue, so my apologies for not knowing.

I don't actually change my desktop that much at all, so therefore this isn't actually my current desktop, but I just found it, and thought it was pretty cool, so I figured I should share it:

Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

Be warned,there's more images out there than there used to be (you know who your friend is), but it's hard to find IRL.

TBH, what got me started was my wife bought two small framed reproductions (which believe ot or not, turned out to be framed placemats - someone just liked the pictures), and what struck me about them...

It seemed to me they were telling a story. I haven't found images of either of them yet, but here's two similar ones.

Cote d'Azur:


Avignon:


As in the two I have, notice the figures of a woman and child. In Avignon, she wears a red top and white skirt/pants, and the child blue top and orange pants. In Cote d'Azur she has a white top and yellow skirt, he has an orange top and blue pants.

When you see a range of his work, painted in London and some of northern France, they're very subdued, sombre, very pale grey day kind of thing. But the ones set in Provence and southern France, are vibrant and full of colour and light... and in the midst of them, those two figures. Granted they may simply be easy to paint, but the storyteller in me said, "What if...?" What if... an English painter travelled to France regularly to paint, and on the way fell in love and had a child that he placed in his paintings, to show that love in a discreet way? I have absolutely no idea if this has any truth (Hann, 1900-1979, was a British artist, and the uncle of contemporary artist Alan Furneaux, and he doesn't have a Wikipedia entry), but I was struck by the difference in his work, and those two figures. His work in Paris, like the desktop one, seems to be between the two, like French Flower Market and Rue Maubert and Quai Aux Fleurs, maybe something started there.

I'm going to turn that thought into a story, and soon. It'll be entirely fictional, of course, but it seems every time I look at (what I call) the sunlit paintings, those figures are there somewhere.
