Van Gogh and Japan: Part 3

Japan in Arles “In early 1888, Van Gogh moved to Arles in the south of France, where he hoped to establish an art colony.

After receiving self-portraits from Emile Bernard…

Dame Laura Knight: ‘I Paint Today’

“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…

Vincent van Gogh: L’homme est en mer (1889)

“Painted at Saint-Rémy in October 1889, Van Gogh’s haunting depiction of a young mother, pining for her husband away at sea, is a brilliant example of the artist’s transformative vision of a time-honoured subject… L’Homme est en mer is Van Gogh’s own interpretation of a work of the same title by his contemporary, the French…

Alfred Sisley: Matinée d’octobre près de Port-Marly (c1876)

“Painted following the First Impressionist Exhibition in April 1874—which had opened the eyes of the public to the revolutionary Impressionist aesthetic—and around the time of its second iteration which helped cement the validity of its new, modern terminology, Matinée d’octobre près de Port-Marly pays fitting homage to the movement’s pursuit of painting en plein air. Determined to capture…

Debussy’s Clair de Lune II

Clair de Lune Your soul is a chosen landscape On which masks and Bergamasques cast enchantment as they go, Playing the lute, and dancing, and all but Sad beneath their fantasy-disguises. Singing all the while, in the minor mode, Of all-conquering love and life so kind to them They do not seem to believe in…

Camille Pissarro: Harvest at Éragny (1901)

“In 1884 Pissarro and his family moved from Pontoise to Éragny on the River Epte. This would be his principal place of residence until his death in 1903 and an ideal setting for his paintings of rural labour and the harvest. His careful arrangement of figures into repeated poses creates a balanced rhythm of line…

Henry Ossawa Tanner: The Disciples See Christ Walking on the Water (1907)

“Tanner favored religious subjects, in part because of his family’s strong spiritual convictions and professional ties to the church. The Disciples See Christ Walking on the Water interprets the Gospel of Matthew (14:24-28): But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. And in the…

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…

Gerald Leslie Brockhurst: The War Widow (1923)

This painting was originally titled Andromache by the artist when it was painted in circa 1923 [fig. 1]. This initial title references the Greek princess recorded in Homer’s Iliad, who lost every male member of her family during the Trojan War. This portrait, painted in the aftermath of the Second World War, consequently assumes a…

Brad Price: Abiquiu Cottonwoods (Meyer Gallery)

“The bold brushstrokes and colors in expressionist works by Brad Price are inspired by the Southwest landscape and its rugged beauty. His work is a rebirth of the sense of style of early Taos painters and the Post-Impressionists. His works in oil are emotive and colorful with strong directional lines that he employs to guide…
