Matisse

The Art Gallery of NSW in Sydney is located in a green lush surrounding near the water – and a free public institution. The gallery is currently showcasing a collection of Henri Matisse – an extraordinary immersion in the range & depth of the art of one of the world’s most beloved & influential artist.

Swedish painter

Here’s a wonderful & inspiring Swedish painter, Johan Einar Jolin, one of my favourites, born in Stockholm (1890 – 1976) & studied at the Swedish Artists’ Association’s painting school with his friend Isaac Grünewald, to then continue his art studies for six years under Matisse in Paris.

Jolin’s motif consists mainly of portraits & still lifes, but also city views, all in naive style. The naive shapes convey wonderful colors with a clean, simple & elegant expression.

Art

We’ve been home in Sweden for a short visit after almost two years of isolation & are now traveling a couple of weeks in Germany before we return home again. We’ve made many visits to various museums. Partly for the art, partly for the architecture (many museum buildings are fantastic) but also for the great silence when you slowly walk around looking & taking in the works. It’s a very calm & soothing environment.

Old paintings

Imagine being able to find old paintings, things that have previously been called junk art, and place them in well-chosen places in the home to bring out some character.
