Yellow and Red

In the summers of 1957 and 1958, Langlais rendered light, wind, and forest greenery in a series of nearly abstract compositions, his last efforts with oil painting before his shift to wood. In Yellow and Red, he transcribes onto canvas the shocking brilliance of peak foliage against a red ground, or a fiery sky at sunset. The work conveys a specific, sensory experience of the Cushing landscape, as well as a more direct, physical engagement with the material of paint.
