Yeah, oor ritter just commented http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,301.msg1137729.html#msg1137729

But anything in particular that immediately strikes you about de Staël's work? When you have a moment, do tell.
Yes, that served as a reminder. :)

Well. The abstraction of shapes in vein of Cézanne and cubists, the use of texture, the colours, and how there's nothing unnecessary.

Very nicely put, Karlo! And good day to you... :)

And who could have thought that football (soccer) could inspire such wonderful paintings? From Nicolas de Staël's Parc des Princes series:
