Turkish Cafe

Turkish Cafe (1914):

Turkish Cafe 2:

by August Macke, who died on September 26, 1914, at the age of 27 at the front during World War 1. You can see more of his work here, here, and here.

Looking at these paintings I find myself wanting to pull that chair up and sit with her. Or maybe I could invite her to join me instead. Here was my view yesterday morning as I was getting this post ready to schedule:

Please join me in visiting with the bloggers who participate in Bleubeard and Elizabeth's weekly T Stands for Tuesday gathering.


  1. Colorful paintings. I like the second one, with the blue wall best. Thanks for a welcoming spot in your cafe. Happy T Day

  2. Good morning, love the view from your window-and thanks for a new to me artist Happy T hugs Kathy

  3. I love this bold paintings! And your view from the window is so peaceful! Lovely !
    Happy T-Day!
    Hugs, Susi

  4. OMGosh. I love the view you have from your computer desk. What a gorgeous view you have. No wonder you spend so much time working on that patio.

    I've never heard of August Macke. so I enjoyed these paintings. Too bad a horrible war took his life far too soon. He had a real talent, didn't he?

    Thanks for sharing the art of August Macke and your view of the patio and your coffee with us for T this Tuesday.

  5. Wonderful paintings and your view is great, too. Happy T Day, Valerie

  6. I like both painting but the 2nd one a little more. He added more detail like leaves and a table you can clearly see. Nice view out your window ;-)

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  7. I like you view from your chair. Love the paintings. It does seem like a lot of these painters die young. Thanks for sharing work by August Macke, today. Happy TSFT

  8. Wonderful paintings, you can almost feel heat looking at the vibrant colours.
    The view from your desk is lovely, so restful to see.
    Happy T day wishes.

  9. That's a nice view. Coffee/tea and garden views is what makes life sweet. Those are fabulous paintings. We're cold and wet today so there's no sitting in the garden for me but it would be nice to do that. Hope it was a good T day. Hugs-Erika

  10. I LOVE those paintings! I wouldn't mind having them hand in my house. And what a lovely view from your window. looks relaxing.
    Happy Tea Day,

  11. What better place to sit with a cup of coffee than looking out on to that patio! :)

  12. Your view would be a hard one to pull away from, especially sat in the comfort of your chair.

  13. I love Macke's simple style - I don't recall seeing these though so thanks for this! Belated Happy T day! Chrisx
