About Terrace of Hotel Mistral

The artwork titled “Terrace of Hotel Mistral” was created by Georges Braque in 1907. It is an oil on canvas painting that reflects the Post-Impressionist movement, a genre that continued the use of vivid colors and expressive brushwork following Impressionism. The dimensions of this landscape painting are 81 x 61 cm. Braque crafted this work in France, and it currently resides in a private collection.

The artwork displays a vibrant and dynamic landscape scene. One can observe a terrace overlooking what appears to be a serene hotel environment, encapsulated by lush foliage. The painting boasts a bold application of color and an aggressive, yet structured approach to form, which is characteristic of Braque’s transitioning phase towards Cubism. Trees with swirling canopies of orange and green dominate the composition, while the architectural elements are simplified to their geometric essentials. The sharp outlines and juxtaposition of warm and cool hues imbue the scene with a sense of depth and vitality. There is a rhythm to the placement of shapes and colors that seems to dance across the canvas, inviting the viewer to explore the visual harmony of the space captured by Braque.
