Horse And Train
Can destiny be altered? The viewer is a helpless witness of an impending disaster, and will never know the outcome because the painter has not painted it. In Horse and Train, the artist portrays a choice between the horse and the engineer in the train. The observer witnesses the confrontation between two freedoms.
Colville has created a sad environment by using dark grey colours. The horse and the train are painted the same dark colour against a gray, cloudy sky. The brightest fundamentals of the picture are; the bright light located on the front of the train and the railwaytracks reflecting the bright light. These two elements draw the viewer’s eyes toward the oncoming train and the horse galloping away from the viewer. The scale of the horse having a small head and large backside makes it appear to be more realistic to the viewer. The railroad lines seem to meet at the horizon creating a feeling of depth, as though the train is a great distance away.

Tsugouharu Foujita - Reclining Nude 
Tsuguharu Foujita (Tokyo, November 27, 1886 - Zurich, January 29, 1968) was a Japanese painter and printmaker who applied Japanese ink techniques to Western style paintings. Foujita had his first studio at 5 Rue Delambre in Montparnasse where he became the envy of everyone when he eventually made enough money to install a bathtub with hot running water. Many models came over to Foujita’s place to enjoy this luxury, among them Man Ray’s very liberated lover Kiki, who boldly posed for Foujita in the nude in the outdoor courtyard. He died of cancer in Zurich, Switzerland.
