Edward Henry Potthast: Water Lilies (1917)

“Standing at the intersection of Impressionism and Realism, Potthast embraced the bustle of places such as Coney Island, Far Rockaway and Brighton Beach, the more populist haunts. Like the Realists, Potthast focused on energetic compositions rather than the kind of languid gentility often portrayed by the Impressionists; yet, like the Impressionists, he painted in a…

Sonia Delaunay: Nature morte portugaise (1916)

“A joyful testament to Sonia Delaunay’s fruitful and happy years on the Iberian peninsula, Nature morte portugaise is a powerful expression of colour, movement and light that immerses the viewer in the raucous, sensual atmosphere of the sun-drenched Portuguese marketplace. Painted in the challenging new medium of wax, this work is a superb example of the…

Peter Paul Rubens: Portrait of a Man as Mars (c.1620)

“Painted in Antwerp around 1620 when the Flemish artist was at the height of his creative powers, Portrait of a Man as Mars blends the genres of portraiture, allegory, and mythology.

Mary Cassatt: Children Playing With Dog (1907)

“An exceptional example of the American Impressionist Mary Cassatt’s famed depictions of motherhood, Children Playing with a Dog presents the unconditional love and complex relationship between a mother and her two children with both psychological and stylistic finesse. While the Madonna and Child has a long historical precedent, Cassatt transformed the subject into her own signature theme….
