Painted Wall, Williamsburg, 2006 (oil on canvas), Laura Shechter

Being drawn to paintings of urban landscapes I enjoy the way Laura Shechter uses color and detail to bring her paintings to the edge of looking photographic

Great graphic design like George Hamel's 1937 "Motor Club de France" never gets old.

 

 

 

Graphic wallpaper print, design from 'Relais', 1920s (color litho), Edouard Benedictus (1878-1930)

When it comes to abstract art, for me it's all about what it emotes within. This wallpaper print from the 1920's feels vibrant and positive to me.

I appreciate the serenity of Jean Gaberell's "1920 Cabin in the Snow". It seems an appealing escape from the frenetic and unsettling times we currently live in.

Brave, crazy or stupid? I'm still pondering the answer but it's fun to discover these little treasures of the past.
