Daumier: Definitively Unfinished

Image coming soon.

Terry Greene discovers an interesting passage by painter Merlin James about Honoré Daumier's "unfinished" paintings.

Greene posts James' quote that Daumier's "definitively unfinished pictures….end up being about suspense itself: their own suspension of meaning, the dependency of content upon form, the artist's grim determination to hold to a thread of narrative and the viewer's inevitable clutching at interpretative straws."
