Hint added to the opening post.

Everyone who has already posted an answer can offer a second guess.

QUESTION/PUZZLE:



HINTS:

1) .5+.5=1

2) Look past the obvious.


Guess:



David Jean --- Spirit of a Savior

Reasoning:

1). Jesus is the 'obvious' and you can 'see past' Him.

2). Depending on the resizing, the Cross in the clouds aligns with the grid lines once given a 50% opacity overlay.

3). The sun rays in the painting go the same diagonal direction as the numbers in the grid.

-----

I still have no idea what .5+.5=1 means or the significance of the numbers or gradient direction.

Why do I keep thinking of Sudoku? I used to play that all the time.

Few paintings touch me deeply that I cannot describe. I went to a museum in Washington, DC and these paintings By Thomas Cole touched me. Just wanted to share.

LOL! Badge, I was just doing that.


And here are the correct guesses to previous puzzles which could possibly be eliminated:

1). Eric Enstrom --- Daily Bread

2). Agapanthus --- Water Lilies

3). Rembrandt --- Christ in the Storm on the Sea of Galilee

4). Frank Benson --- Calm Morning

5). Henry Raeburn --- Reverend Robert Walker Skating on Duddingston Loch

6). Rembrandt --- A vase of roses

7). Renoir --- Grande Vaso De Fiori

8). Johann Liss --- The Sacrifice of Isaac

9). Rembrandt --- St. Mathew and the Angel

 


Also, not sure if this is significant but 'looking past the obvious' might mean looking at the background of the painting instead of the focal object.

Example. Look at the blue gradient in the graph going from left to right, darker into lighter. Then look at the example painting, Alfred Godchaux's Les Fleurs at Fruits d'Ete to see how the background has a similar dark-to-light left to right gradient. Several other paintings have the same background. Not sure if this is a correct line of thinking but it could help somebody:

Ok, if we do get rid of the grid / numbers we are left with a blue background going from dark to light (as Ashley said) so with .5+.5=1 which could be half dark + half light = 1 ... er... one painting

Im gonna say Young woman reading by a window by Delphin Enjolras because the woman is sitting in the dark but leaning into the light which connects the dark to light creating one painting.

Any good?

I'm just more ashamed of myself because I actually thumbed through the art in the OP thinking it was an actual choice at first. After being surprised it was not there, I Googled it to see what it was then had a bit of an eye roll at both you for guessing that and myself for taking it seriously.
