Art and Beauty Tuesday--Emile Friant
This painting is Ombres Portées by Emile Friant (1891) is a perfect accompaniment to yesterday's A Man and a Woman by Francis Lai. Translated as Shadows, the darkness of the clothing and the shadows is juxtaposed with the white wall they are in front of. The man looks at the woman pleadingly while the woman looks away. A classic pose with a surprisingly modern touch.
