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

Monet’s Grainstacks I

“In Monet’s increasingly urbanized world, such stacks had become postcard symbols of agricultural bounty as a blessing.

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…
