|A Galla Placidia by simon hantai oil and wax on linen 130" x 167" 1958-59|
I saw these two paintings by Simon Hantai in 2009 when we were in Paris. So moved, I wrote about both my journal, and as I look at them again now, I am still inspired. He worked on the pink one in the mornings, and the darker one in the afternoons every day for one year. (this detail found here)
