A quirky little number

Most of the art I have come to love usually consist of melancholy, brooding landscapes that calm your inner turmoil but just occasionally, a bit of colour pops up to make a real impact.

I was watching a set of films about the influence of the Riveria on art and came across Leopold Survage. This little cubist painting just made me smile: Survage - LandscapeI positively adored the little man with the bowler hat and was struck by the sheer beauty of colour used within this.  His 1912 abstracts are at MOMA in New York and this website has all the details you need to know about this Russian-born artist.
