1888 - 1949

Baie St Paule, 1945
9" x 7"
This piece by Franz Johnston explores the relationship between light and colour. The sky fades from a deep grey to a light orange with an almost seamless transition. A deep blue line acts as the horizon, separating the sky from the bright blue water. This contrasts with dim colours of the foreground, creating visual tension that intrigues the onlooker’s eye.
