Color perspective (Horizontal), 1922

Jacques Villon

Overlapping blocks of geometric forms float above a warm red background. The title, Color Perspective, describes the vibrant juxtaposition of warm and cool hues, as well as the formal relationships between the shapes that make up this painting. It’s a compelling picture — for all its bold simplicity, it invites us to consider questions of aesthetics: what we notice, what we find pleasing, what puzzles us.
