Influenced by French Impressionism, Childe used bright colors and bold brush strokes that sparkle even today.  His use of color and light and pattern to produce and image is masterful.

But the roots of all artists are found in the men and women that produced and balanced light and color by hand, spending days, weeks or months on one piece.
