Claude Monet: Nymphéas en fleur (1914-17)

Sir Alfred James Munnings: Jogging On (1912)

“Munnings often used his own horses and groom as models and this horse, Patrick, despite his cropped tail and banged mane, was a particular favourite. On this grey day, the artist used a subdued palette yet adds life and brightness by juxtaposing the scarlet of the huntsman’s jacket with the close vivid hues of green…

Monet’s Grainstacks II

“Monet’s paintings from this series bear the French title Meules, a word that can be translated as “stacks.” For a long time the title was misinterpreted as Haystacks; however, the objects in Monet’s paintings are actually sheaves of grain. In the agriculture of nineteenth-century Normandy, conical stacks of unthreshed grain were covered with straw or…

“At the Edge of the Cliff is one of the strongest works in this clifftop series. The young woman in her striking striped blue and white skirt and white jumper has a timeless quality to her, her outfit feeling as modern to a contemporary audience as it did over 100 years ago. She stands on the…

His careful arrangement of figures into repeated poses creates a balanced rhythm of line…

Monet’s Grainstacks I

“In Monet’s increasingly urbanized world, such stacks had become postcard symbols of agricultural bounty as a blessing. Determined with his grainstack paintings to go beyond the brilliantly exacting transcription of visual sensations at the heart of Impressionist landscape painting, Monet explained the challenge to his art critic friend, Gustave Geffroy in October 1890: “… the…

Camille Pissarro: Vue sur le village d’Osny (1883)

“Painted in 1883, Vue sur le village d’Osny is a wonderfully accomplished work dating from Pissarro’s last ‘Pontoise Period’ before the artist left the region for Éragny in 1884…The complex perspective, showing the two parts of the village bisected by a row of poplar trees and a foreground of dense impasto, illustrates the remarkable breadth of…

Frederick Carl Frieseke: Under the Awning (1916)

“Frieseke’s celebrated Giverny subjects of women in domestic interiors, or, such as in the present example, enjoying moments of leisure in the village’s opulent gardens, are imbued with a remarkable sense of light and high-keyed palette adopted from the French Impressionists. William H. Gerdts writes, “It was Frieseke who introduced into the repertory of Giverny…

András Schiff: Schubert, Beethoven, and Bach

Robinson, a Vermont native, painted this scene in France, perhaps at Giverny, where he was a friend of Claude Monet. The woman recalls the peasants of Barbizon art but confronts us as they do not.
