This is a pastel painting of the night sky. The luminosity of a moonlight sky.
“When I was young, I believed…that painting was a sort of reaction which reconstructed the spectacle before our eyes, preserving our memory of it, or that it allowed us to reconstruct or imagine some scene which illustrated an idea. Now I think that painting is rather in the domain of philosophy.” – Jacques Villon (1875-1963)
