The Artist and his Model
1919; Oil on canvas, 23 5/8" x 28 3/4"; National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa

The design of this picture is complex yet stirdily ordered. The long straight lines pull one's eye to the bottom left, but then the warm orange on the upper left brings the eye back up. The color and tone of the picture demanded a creamy texture to the paint, which works very well in this picture.
