"Landscape With Cows" — Robert Delauney

1

This 1906 oil on canvas by a co-founder of the Orphism movement* got my attention when it appeared on my daily desk calendar earlier this month (September 14 if you must know precisely when).

It immediately called to mind the crosshatch motif

Zzzz

so prominent in the work of Jasper Johns.

Johns is said to have first seen it on the side of a gangbanger's lowrider on an LA freeway; whether or not that's apocryphal, it's a great story.

The Delauney work is owned by the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.

*Sonia Delauney and František Kupka were the other co-founders

Another fantastic Korean film.

Discovering Korean cinema with the aid of Apple TV has been one of the year's best revelations.
