I went with a friend today to an exhibition of John Duncan Fergusson's paintings. He was one of the Scottish Colourists. There were some that we could happily have lived with, such as the one above. That would look very nice in my sitting room. Isn't the light reflected in the glass vase beautiful?
Then there were various others that - maybe not. This one is ENORMOUS. It reminds me faintly of my Zumba class... .
I do know that art isn't just about what would look good in the home. All the same, I prefer the restful flowers (though they're a bit botanically vague) to the alarmingly bouncy dancers.
