Cuno Amiet's Reds

 These Cuno Amiet portraits, created in the first quarter of the 20th century, astound us. From russet to berry, brick to cinnamon, Amiet's reds are smeared, brushed and dabbled across these canvases creating perpetual movement and a strange calm. He's a favorite and these paintings are top of the list.
