Pierre Bonnard: Flowers in a Stoneware Pot (c1939)

“This rustic, variegated bouquet may have been placed either in the spacious dining room on the ground floor at Le Bosquet or in the intimate sitting area upstairs where Bonnard and Marthe took their breakfast and lunch each day. As always, however, Bonnard would have painted the composition in his studio, overt description giving way…

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…

Odilon Redon: Profil sous une arche

“Associated with the Symbolist movement, the art of Odilon Redon demonstrates a superb mastery of the pastel technique which draws it source from French 18th century art. The Impressionist painters such as Manet or Degas revived this medium, but Redon then developed a particular style which evoked a world inhabited by a deep sense of…

Claude Monet: Nymphéas en fleur (1914-17)

“Although Monet created the water garden in part to fulfill his passion for horticulture, he also intended it as a source of artistic inspiration.

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,…

Pierre Bonnard: Renoncules au vase bleu (c1925)

“For Bonnard, the still-life offered a perfect vehicle for his studies in light and color, with bundles of flowers and fruit among his favorite subjects to explore. In the present bouquet, a bright summer arrangement dominated by a group of orange ranunculuses, the flowers have begun to droop, their full, heavy blossoms dipping downwards, over…

Jacques-Louis David: The Death of Socrates, Part II

“In addition to being an essential step in the elaboration of the Metropolitan picture, the present drawing is a fascinating document for our understanding of David’s working method. He first traces different lines of perspective and outlines in graphite the décor with the help of a ruler. He then adds, still using graphite, the figures…

Jacques-Louis David: The Death of Socrates, Part I

“In this landmark of Neoclassical painting from the years immediately preceding the French Revolution, David took up a classical story of resisting unjust authority in a sparse, frieze-like composition. The Greek philosopher Socrates (469–399 B.C.) was convicted of impiety by the Athenian courts; rather than renounce his beliefs, he died willingly, discoursing on the immortality…

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…

The composition is complex, with the placement of the figures carefully arranged in order to lead…
