Market Scenes

Baila Feldman frequently painted scenes from everyday life: people playing in the park; lovers, children, holiday celebrations, etc...  Some of her happiest works were market scenes.  The two examples shown here are in very different contexts.  Below is a Mexican market, with a gold leaf sky and a rural, tree filled location with cloth tents. Above is an urban scene that looks European with classic buildings in the background and a brilliant red sky.  But the feeling of joy and brilliant color is constant in both.
