I saw this painting (above) by Alberto Pasini at the Chicago Art Institute and was reminded how much I admire his work. I'm not usually as attracted to landscapes and cityscapes, but I love his pallet and sense of color. upon closer inspection, those that i've seen in person seem to be executed with the perfect combination of detail and looseness. I'm going to continue to do research on Pasini, and have been loving the work. just thought I'd share, enjoy.
