“Sainte-Victoire yellow sky” is a painting from the Sainte-Victoire series by the contemporary artist Clotilde Philipon. In this series of paintings, the artist pays tribute to Paul Cézanne and his stone muse.
In this painting the artist pushes the reflection on light to the extreme. The warmth of the yellow invades the top of the canvas, while the shadows dominate towards the bottom. The more light there is, the more realistic the figure becomes. Thus the lower part of the canvas is more like an abstract painting. The presence of geometrically rigorous lines, blue, yellow, white or black, creates a striking contrast with the treatment of the other elements of the landscape.
“Sainte-Victoire yellow sky” is a bright and colourful painting. We could see it becoming the star of the show on its own.
