Its hard lines, monochrome colors and perfect gradients seemed to limit the emotional palette to messages of simple happiness and joy famous from Matisses cut-outs, or the brutal surrealistics of a Daly, while I am more attracted to the Bonnards, Vuillards, Sisleys or De Staels, Vermeers silent here-and-now and the introvert abstracts of artists like Schoonhoven and ...
