Longing for those cool summer nights. Summer Night (1925) by the American artist Aloys Bohnen (1889-1967) shows a gathering of people on a cool summer night in Southern California. The scene is set around some tidepools formed in a eucalyptus grove. And the place is lit up by some orange paper lanterns, creating an artificial night sky. The people are dressed at their best for this gathering, and we can see the women wearing suits. This painting is more about capturing a mood than trying to capture a detailed image of the gathering. But there is one woman who stands out a bit. In the center, we can see a lady in an orangey dress, looking over her shoulder. She seems somewhat hesitant and shy while she looks in our direction, as if she wants to tell us something. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #AmericanArt #AmericanArtist #AmericanPainter #California #SoCal #SouthernCalifornia #Summer #SummerNight #Night #AloysBohnen #Bohnen #Tidepools #NightSky #Night #Mood #Atmosphere #Impressionism
