Air, Fire

I chose the painting Air, Fire by Auguste Herbin.  The painting was completed in 1944.  The medium is oil on canvas.  The painting is 5’ by 7’8”.  The painting can be found at the Musee National  d’Arte Moderne in Paris.  I like the way all of the bright colors contrast in this painting.  The colors are more vivid in the actual painting than in the picture.  The colors of fire are portrayed really well in the painting.  I also like that it is made out of basic geometric shapes.
