    • Ekaterina Hello, I feel the delay of my reply. I understand your preferences for images in the style of Japanese prints. Perhaps the two most important revolutions of representation of art, were: one during the onset of the Renaissance, when the lines were looking perspective, depth and three dimensions and the other in reverse, like a ’round trip’ when the post-impressionists adopt the boundary lines of flat colours and shapes and also motifs of ornamentation to highlight and remind the two basic dimensions of any support. I am very grateful, for your nice and kind opinion has allowed us to remember these important changes in history. Best wishes and thanks a million ❤

    • I’m sorry, I forgot the most important, I think you already know it, but is good to remember that the ‘Ukiyo-e’, the art from Japan, was impacting on the post-impresionism works.

    Precioso Gauguin!!!

    • ¡Qué ilusión poder contestar sin tener que consultar el diccionario inglés! Coincido plenamente con tu opinión. Es una pequeña gran obra. Los perfiles le iban muy bien a Gauguin para ensalzar la línea y las formas planas. En la Bretaña francesa ya despertó su interés por la mística y en Tahití colmó su arte, que de lo exótico destila misticismo. Como si evocara al Románico y al Bizantino con receta de Polinesia. Muchas gracias, Moli, por tu comentario. ‘Na nit des del Guinardó’. 🙂

  5. Such a delightful post and an equally delightful blog. It is a treat to sit back and enjoy your posts

    • I’m so grateful, because this site was born to be used as a magazine. That’s because it has few text and a lot of pictures. You have discovered the exact meaning. Greetings 😉
