Dan Rupe
Hudson Library Between the Homes (Colorful Fauvist Style Cityscape Painting)




Colorful, Fauvist style cityscape painting of Hudson, NY library in the distance between a parked car and townhouses. 34 x 26 inches oil on canvas, framed in a simple black moulding This modern, Fauvist-style cityscape painting by Dan Rupe captures the streets of Hudson, NY with colorful, expressionist brushwork. Here the artist combines his signature pops of crimson red with vivid sky blue, pale yellow, and violet purple. Loose, gestural strokes of paint are applied with an impasto effect, creating interesting texture and brilliant opacity. The artist's illustrative signature is found on the back of the canvas. A simple black frame compliments this brightly colored, vertical cityscape painting. More about the artist: Dan Rupe paints the town he loves with expressive abandon and a high-keyed palette. Inspired by the animated summer energy, the rhythms of Commercial Street, the diverse architecture and color of the jumbled mix of historic and commercial and community landmarks, Rupe likes to be out on the street first thing in the morning, taking in the sensations of town and composing his eye, and singing with the summer spirit of Provincetown. He paints only from life, his composition ruled by his intuitive sense of formal order. He begins covering his canvas with a deep crimson wash. This ground gives his brilliant pure color , applied with an expressive, direct gesture, an electric charge. No matter how often or how long one looks at a Rupe painting, it is always the present tense. The tone of his palette, the freshness and clarity of primary colors, reflects an optimistic attitude, an intrinsic love of life.
