The striking color juxtapositios have excited such interest in this picture that more thoughtful qualities of its palette are often missed. Note the contrasting symmetrical pillars of green and pink, and the tendency of the window panes to feflect chiefly the hue of the opposite side. Alfred Barr has justly commented on the inconsistencies of brushwork between the interior and exterior, finding a certain Impressiontic survival in the conception of the latter. But this difference is to a degree functional, serving to demarcate two distinct worlds. Moreover, the broken brushstrokes of the exterior serve to thrust emphatically forward and thus render more intense the flat passages serving as framing elements. Indeed, the relatively long strokes of the exterior resemble Impressionist technique less than they resemble many Matisses from the Nice epoch of 1917 and forward. The one paradox, intentional or not, is that the artist has here produced a picture in which the frame is more important than the view. Looking far ahead, one might compare "Open Window, Collioure" with certain of Frank Stella's chromatic compositions of the 1960s, where frame and pictorial design have been completely merged into a unified, mutually dependent structural system.

This is a Serigraph
You are viewing a Serigraph print. Fine artists create serigraphs in limited runs by applying layer upon layer of pigment to the print surface by pressing it through a mesh screen containing a stencil. The complex and lengthy process commonly uses inks for pigment and stencils made of a variety of materials. Because of the nature of the process each serigraph is unique.

This is a Giclee
You are viewing a giclee print. Each piece was created by a special process called "Giclee". Giclee is a computer generated print that is produced by the spraying of an image on to fine art paper. The inks used are specially formulated so that the fine print heads can spurt jets of ink in minute droplets. When prints are produced on fine art quality paper, the print should posses archival standards of permanence comparable or better than other collectible work.

This is a Hand Colored Print
You are viewing a hand colored print. The process begins with hand-pulled black & white decorative and antique reproduction prints. Each print is then individually designed and hand colored using the same methods of color application that were used throughout the 19th century, before modern color lithography. Individual artists meticulously paint each piece using the finest European watercolor paints on heavy mat, acid free, archival paper resistant to deterioration and discoloration. By combining old world craftsmanship with fresh design innovations, our artists create works of stunning depth and vibrancy that are absolutely beautiful and unique.

This is a Museum Quality Fine Art Print
You are viewing a museum quality fine-art print. The prints we carry are produced using either the lithographic or serigraphic printing process and are printed on high quality archival acid free paper. Most prints are on a thick (120 pound or higher) stock of paper. Each print is of the highest museum art print reproduction quality and are supplied by the world's leading art publishers. These prints rival any detailed reproduction from their originals and are geared towards the discerning eye of the particular art collector.

This is a Limited Edition
Limited editions are a series of identical prints, which are limited to a one-time printing of a certain number of pieces. The artist determines the size of the edition, and usually signs and numbers each individual piece. Limited edition prints framed by the Fulcrum Gallery are handled separately and given the utmost individual care and attention, using archival framing materials and practices. Because limited editions are in limited supply, and are of exceptionally high quality, the price is generally at a premium to regular open edition prints.
