Frederick Carl Frieseke: Japanese Parasol (1913)

“According to Nicholas Kilmer, the present work was painted circa 1913 when the artist spent the winter with his family in Corsica. It was around this time that the burgeoning Giverny Group of American painters had drawn the attention of art critics back in New York. Henry McBride regarded Frieseke and the work of his…

Maria Berrio: The Lovers 4 (2016)

“…Rooted in childhood memories of Colombia and the artist’s experience of migration, as well as a fascination with the relationship between humans and their environment, The Lovers 4 is charged with a history that is as personal as it is universal, and as timely as it is timeless. Executed in Berrio’s idiosyncratic paper collage style,…

Gari Melchers: Sainte Gudule (c1897)

“Gari Melchers painted the present work as a representation of Saint Gudule, the patron saint of Brussels who was known for her piety and great generosity. According to legend, during Gudule’s early morning visits to the church in Moorsel, the devil would extinguish her candle, which proceeded to miraculously re-ignite as a result of her…

Gari Melchers: Sunday Mass

“In the present lot the influence of the Hague School has disappeared. Instead the fresh green, red and purple colours show impressionistic influences. The painting shows the interior of a church, possibly the Reformed Church of Egmond-Binnen. The attention given by Melchers to depicting the different figures demonstrates Melchers’ qualities as a storyteller. Not only…

Maria Berrio: The Celebration (2012)

“The Celebration lives up to its name with its kaleidoscopic array of colors and movements, which are meticulously created with handmade Japanese paper that Berrío sources from a trusted fabricator in Japan…Her work is thus an instance of care for materials, people, and cultures alike, which we can see in the optimism of The Celebration….

Frederick Carl Frieseke: Child Knitting (1922)

“While Frederick Carl Frieseke is admired for his beautiful images of women, it is his paintings of his daughter Frances that offers an intimate glimpse into the artist’s life. Child Knitting is a tender portrait of the young girl in the garden of their Normandy home. She contently sits knitting, enveloped by the lush grass….

Crusell’s Clarinet Concerto No. 2 in F Minor, Op. 5: I. Allegro

“Music, Pink and Blue No. 2, was completed as O’Keeffe was transitioning from teaching in Texas to her career-launching life in New York. In 1915, O’Keeffe was introduced into the New York art scene when a friend shared a series of her highly abstract drawings with Alfred Stieglitz. Stieglitz exhibited ten of her drawings in…

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…

Christ and His Mother Studying the Scriptures presents a dramatic, yet intimate scene.

Georgia O’Keeffe: White Rose with Larkspur No. I (1927)

“In 1927, O’Keeffe created five paintings of white roses, including the present work and White Rose with Larkspur No. II, in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. This composition was no doubt one of the artist’s favorites—she hung the related work in her bedroom in Abiquiu, New Mexico, before it was acquired by the…

Autumn in Paintings

“This monumental view of the Hudson River Valley was painted from memory in the artist’s London studio. Cropsey adopted a high vantage point, looking southeast toward the distant Hudson River and the flank of Storm King Mountain. A small stream leads from the foreground, where three hunters and their dogs gaze into the sunlight. All…

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. Women who appear to blend with a natural setting are seen often in American Impressionism. Florence Griswald Museum Franz Schubert:…
