Unlikely Pair: Nicholson and Sanyu

I have loved both of these paintings for a long time and only just looked at them in relation to one another.  Beautiful simplicity in color, bold value relationships, strange scale and narrative moments, art historical contexts.  Mmmm exquisite.

William Nicholson, Statuettes and Rodin Bronze, 1907

Sanyu, Virgin Mary and Infant Jesus, 1930-39
