Is Tuesday named for a one-handed god?

Monticelli, Adolphe

French painter whose finest works, derived from scenes by Antoine Watteau, are dreamlike images of courtly revels. Using thick daubs of paint, applied to achieve a swirling effect, he created a poetic, visionary expression with radiant lights and deep shadows. His work was much admired by Vincent van Gogh and had a greater impact on 20th-century art than on that of the 19th century.
