Hello February with the loveliest place- started the day with a view from the coasts of Cassis, from my art calendar of the Metropolitan Museum of Art!
Here is Cassis from Paul Signac’s pointillism- “The Jetty at Cassis, Opus 198”. As Paul Signac found it, “White, blue and orange, harmoniously spread over the beautiful rise and fall of the land. All around the mountains with rhythmic curves.”
The rhythmic curves do carry a rhythm of their own actually, as Signac inscribed each of his pictures with an opus number to evoke analogies with musical compositions ♪♬ Thus, here we have the rhythm of the Cassis curves as Opus 198, consisting of small dots of his white, blue and orange colors feeding the whole in the viewer’s eye – as a work of pointillism style.
