Fresh air

Richard Diebenkorn, Woman in Profile (1958)

Balthus, Girl at Window (1957)

Edgar Degas, Woman at a Window (1871)

Salvador Dali, Woman at the Window at Figueres (1926)

Edvard Munch, Girl by the Window (1893)

Johannes Vermeer, Girl Reading a Letter (1658)

Edward Hopper, Morning Sun (1952)

Henri Matisse, The Blue Window (1911)

I'm drawn to paintings of windows. A portal to the colorful world, they represent imagination, possibility and freedom. A figure beside a window is a common theme, but lovely still.
