Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida - Afternoon Sun.jpg
Joaquín Sorolla – Afternoon Sun

Great art distills complex themes in a simple statement, so we can get it easily.

In the picture above there are four guys doing really tough work. Dealing with animals,  mud, water, wind, all at the same time. But they are not shouting and cursing. They seem quite relaxed. They are just doing their work and they have no false expectations about it. The choose of color and the bright sun suggest, that there is beauty to find in the labours of work.

And Sorolla made this statement credible by painting this lovely fluid painting in size 299 cm x 441 cm or 9,8′ x 14,5′.
