Pyramids by Yervant Chimchidian

pyramids by Yervant Chimchidian
I have uploaded Yervant Chimchidian's (1903-1975) Pyramids not because of its historical or commercial value, but because I thought it would look cool against the dark background of the site. I really heard these words and I'm sure you must have had, too.

I do not know why, but Yervant's oil on canvas moves me. Not that it is melancholic; on the contrary, whenever I feel like that, it swiftly takes me out of it. Oh, it does look cool against a dark background, by the way. :-)

Dimensions: 24.5x35.5 cm.
Estimated value: $ 750

  1. The combination of colours are womderful; something that makes the viewer to feel warm and safe, or at least that what I felt :P

    I do agree that the contranst between the background colour of your blog and the painting make it awsome too :)
