The night

Darkness turns objects into mere shadows. They disappear, become one with their surroundings. The attraction of the night comes from the invisible. How do artists find a way to depict the indistinct, the mystery of the night? The blurred portrait of the sleeping stands out only slightly from the background, friends embrace each other during a night excursion. The forest, gently illuminated by the moon, becomes the scene of a crime. Throughout the ages, the artists were fascinated by darkness and the representation of the night. Their pictures reveal an individual view of the night, be it romantic, documentary or analytical.
