  9. 9. Introduction: My comparative study looks into the similarities of use of colour, stroke and texture between painters of different cultural and historical contexts. My grandfather Jean-François Brahin is a painter I look up to and I remember being in an exhibition he did in Montpelier, France which had “place de la Contrescarpe Paris” (see fig. 2). I was inspired by the layout and use of colours. The painting reminds me of Paris which I have a personal connection to. My grandfather was highly inspired by Matisse and Van Gogh. So when I saw “Goldfish and Sculptures” (see fig. 1) by Henri Matisse and “The Starry Night” (see fig. 3) by Vincent Van Gogh in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, I was astonished by mood and tone of the paintings so I had to compare it with JF Brahin. These paintings (see Fig. 1-3) show details of similar lines and colour palette. These artists led me to approach make a painting with a contemporary style and a similar palette. “Goldfish and Sculptures” Henri Matisse - 1912 “Place de la contrescarpe” Jean François Brahin “Le pesage A Deauville” Raoul Dufy - 1930 “The Starry Night” Vincent Van Gogh - 1889 Fig. 1.Henri Matisse, Goldfish and Sculptures, 1912.
