Okay, there are Monet's Rouen Cathedral paintings, more than thirty of them painted in 1892 and 1893 – studies in light and shadow – the same façade, but each is vastly different than that last. Given the time of day and the weather, the light and color was always dramatically different. And in 1895 Monet selected what he considered to be the twenty best of these paintings to display at his Paris dealer’s gallery, and sold eight before the exhibition was over. Pisarro and Cézanne dropped by too – they loved the series. The subject matter didn't matter. It was all about the light. These guys painted light. It was all about light.
But Rouen was more than ten years ago – and just one lazy June afternoon – and the cathedral just looked old and tired. Hollywood will have to do now.
But it's still all about light. And once again it’s the 1991 mural by Annie Sperling, A Mural Dedicated to Peace ("Silver Lake Mi Amor") on the southwest corner of Sunset and Hyperion. It doesn't change, but the light changes it.
