Art Quote Monday- Paul Gauguin

"Cézanne paints a brilliant landscape: ultramarine background, heavy greens, glistening ochres; a row of trees... The burst of emerald greens expresses the delicate verdure of the garden, while in contrast the deep note of the purple nettles in the foreground orchestrates a simple poem..." Paul Gauguin

This quote fills my mind with Cezanne's colours .... and Gauguin's too, especially ochre side by side with emerald green.
