Sunset
Winslow Homer

"As his career evolved the painter turned more and more to the sea and to the depiction of the eternal struggle between man and nature. His painting Sunset showcases such adoration and offers us a tranquil feeling of the day that is ending in work yet at the same time repose."/>

Willows at Sunset
Vincent van Gogh

"His painting Willows at Sunset, believed to have been done primarily as a sketch for another piece, displays the artist’s fiery nature. The violent brushstrokes and the thick application of paint suggest that the painting was done in haste as if trying to capture the descent of the burning Sun who holds in this image almost an iconic importance.

The Houses of Parliament, Sunset
Claude Monet

His painting The Houses of Parliament offer us an atmospheric image of the world’s light as the day comes to an end. As Monet frequently worked with the same subject matter over a period of time, maybe we can describe this image as the diary of light.

Sunset, Long Island
Georgia O’Keeffe

"One of her main goals was to abstract the natural world in order to make it even more appealing and her production is frequently associated with the history of abstract landscapes. Such is the case with her painting Sunset, Long Island where by the help of simple and flat, almost monochromatic surfaces the image of the setting Sun dipping into the water of Hudson river stands before us."

I'm just browsing this folder again, I know this particular subject didn't get much attention (1 view?) But seeing this one again, I really like it! I love O'Keeffe and I like how it isn't 'exactly' portrayed as a sunset looks in life. I don't know how to explain what I see and feel, I just really enjoy this one...I think the most of all of them!

And if I could possibly acquire her painting for myself, I would proudly display it in my front room!

Yeah I guess he did! I've never heard of him, but he does do a good job on sunsets.

I saw this painting at Musee d'orsey. I love Monet's paintings. To me they have a tranquilizing feeling.

I too think this painting is a good interpretation of Van Gogh's spirited fiery nature. The bright colours speak for that.

Heather | 8545 comments “Fiery nature” is an excellent way to associate Van Gogh with that painting with all the yellow/gold and wide brush strokes...
