  2. Not having heard of this painter, I looked him up and was surprised to find that in spite of his German name he was an American who spent much of his life as a expatriate in France. He died 8 days before the official beginning of World War 2.

    This painting is so beautiful! OMG! You can see a great composition in the black lines on their clothes, great paint quality in the variety of brush strokes, ( I mean the skin is different from the fabric ) You can see the classical training that artist had, I don’t need to look him up. Figure drawing like that is no happy accident. That took years of practice. Now compare this to modern impressionists passing off color roughs as finished paintings. The modern impressionists aren’t even in the same league and if this artist painted this today it wouldn’t be accepted in a show by modern impressionists because it wouldn’t be called “cohesive” with the style of the modern impressionist pretenders. Thanks for letting my get my digs in against modern impressionists hahahah They are so freakin lazy.

    1. I could not agree more! When I study this painting I am in awe…that gorgeous black line, the colors, the composition… Nothing in modern impressionism come close. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Chris. 🙂

        Always a pleasure, Sunny! Also the lines of the cage. Modern impressionists can’t do that because they don’t like using a skinny brush. I can’t even count the times well meaning people have told me to use big brushes. And they can’t wait for paint to dry to paint detail on top so modern impressionists can’t do detail either. Impressionism is a whole different and sadly lacking game today.
