  1. Twachtman’s paintings are exquisitely beautiful. He places just enough paint on the canvas to let us see a suggestion of form emanating from the light within, colors scraped down till only a hint of shade is left. If any more is removed from the scene, it will bleed like flesh taken down to bone. He makes me feel that my heart is aching but vibrantly alive. Amazing artist. Thank you for bringing him to our attention.
