“Nothing should be ‘inhabited’ in a painting, no space should remain lifeless. Everything should conspire to enhance a painting’s harmonious balance. This is what invests a painting with its vibrancy.”- Jules Cavaillès
Jules Cavaillès loved painting scenes evoking the pleasures of life, as we see here in Jeune Fille au Gilet Vert. The artist has juxtaposed vibrant yet harmonious touches of orange, yellow and green imbuing the painting with life and energy.
