Filling the Well: Victor Hugo and Eugène Carrière

"The Contemplator" (1901)          Eugène Carrière

What makes night within us may leave stars.

–Victor Hugo

According to the Cleveland Museum of Art website, "in this painting Carrière captures the atmosphere of Victor Hugo's poems through his expressive brushstrokes and monochromatic palette."

  1. What a neat match! I like that Carrière painted that to commemorate Hugo's 100th birthday, and that it is oil on fabric!
