These oil paintings of interiors by jan de vliegher are so intense in terms of color and light. I love the blurry, out of focus hand of these depictions of obviously wealthy homes, as if the artist is stoutly refusing to showcase the details. I have no idea if that's really the case but the soft, glowing view of these interiors actually make them more accessible and appealing. Which isn't necessarily the idea the original owners were going for when you think about it. Undeniably grand, I'm loving the fact that the artist has made our experience of the place his own. They're just wonderful on so many levels.
