Joseph Stella | Tree of Nice | Hollis Taggart Galleries

Josef Stella (Italy 1877-USA 1946).’Tree of Nice’ (the french city, I suppose, 1928-30).
That stylised foreground with an umbrella pine looks like a theatre scenery in front of a simplified impressionist landscape. I find this contrast, as well as the colours, arresting.
