Nicolas de Staël
I discovered Nicolas de Staël through this languid nude hanging at the Picasso Museum in Antibes, France. I admire his instinctive sense of colour and spaces and his simple but essential use of lines. Although I drew this with the humble (yet mighty) graphite pencil, I can still recall the intense use of colour and contrast on this one. Despite the high contrast the image of this languid nude conveys a sense of rest and respite and of no hurry at all.
