Just had a wonderful time at the Columbus Museum here in Columbus, Georgia. Great art show, which included emerging artists and established ones Very impressive! I came back and started looking at my painting websites. As usual, I am drawn to the Blaue Reiter. When I looked up Alexei Jawlensky, the MoMA writeup said he was a founding member of Neue künstlervereinigung münchen (NKVM). And there he is in the same group as two other favorites – Werefin and Kandinsky. I love this type of art. The painting above is alexej-von-jawlensky, schokko with a red hat, 1909. Then I found a lovely little one by an artist in the same group. It definitely has a bit of a Russian vibe. Love the cloth, love the teapot, love the fruit. Very simple, but very emotional – comfort.
