You-July ’70

JAMA. 2012;307(23):2466. doi:10.1001/jama.2012.3044

At first glimpse of You-July ’70, by the Indian artist Biren De (1926-2011), which resides at the Peabody Essex Museum, one is struck by its vivid colors. The scalloped circles of red, orange, and yellow draw attention to its white center, almost making it shimmer with brilliance. The painting radiates a warmth and energy that make it perfect and fitting for today, June 20, the 2012 summer solstice.
