The very eye of night

The Night, Ferdinand Hodler , 1890

Painted after serious psychological crisis, this Hodler’s work shows the theme of sleep and the fear of death.  The feeling of heavy, restless sleep, fear and grieve. Personally, I like all the blacks with the hints of violets, lilacs and purples placed against the delicate, mother-of-pearly tones.
