Camille Thomas: Cello Sonata in G Minor, Op.65 (Chopin)

“A journey in three chapters to discover Chopin’s life through the sound of the cello. The most ambitious project of the Franco-Belgian cellist Camille Thomas. Camille Thomas plays on the Franchomme’s mythical cello – the Stradivarius Feuermann. The Chopin’s sonata for cello and piano was dedicated to his friend Auguste-Joseph Franchomme. Franchomme transcribed the Chopin’s…

Mary Cassatt: Children Playing With Dog (1907)

“An exceptional example of the American Impressionist Mary Cassatt’s famed depictions of motherhood, Children Playing with a Dog presents the unconditional love and complex relationship between a mother and her two children with both psychological and stylistic finesse. While the Madonna and Child has a long historical precedent, Cassatt transformed the subject into her own signature theme….

Mary Cassatt: Young Lady in a Loge Gazing to Right (1878-79)

“…As Paul Gauguin, the original owner of Young Lady in a Loge Gazing to Right, reflected after viewing another painting in the series, “Mlle Cassatt has as much charm, but she has more power” than her female contemporaries (as quoted in The Queen Bees: The Women Who Shaped America, New York, 1979, p. 117). It…

Camille Pissarro: La Gardeuse de chèvre (1881)

“Portrayals of local peasant life capture the rural charm of Pontoise, where Pissarro lived from 1866 until 1883. This location allowed Pissarro to separate himself from the influence of his predecessors, the established French landscape painters, and to depict an environment previously scarcely recorded by other masters.” READ FULL ESSAY: Sotheby’s See More Camille Pissarro…

Willard Leroy Metcalf: May Pastoral (1907)

Happy Birthday, dear one! You are loved today and every day. ❤️❤️❤️ “Critics lauded Willard Leroy Metcalf for his ability to capture the spirit of the New England landscape in a uniquely American style. In May Pastoral, Metcalf conveys the quiet energy of spring in a realistic depiction of the Old Lyme, Connecticut countryside. The…

Gustave Loiseau: Falaises (1904-5)

“Loiseau’s interpretation of the cliffs of Northern France is charged with scintillatingly bright colour, tightly dappled brushstrokes in contrasting hues that vibrate off one another, creating a glittering sense of movement. Harnessing his subject on a grand scale and from an elevated viewpoint, Loiseau employs vertical brushstrokes in the cliff-faces to provide a vertiginous and…

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…

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. In his petition to the authorities, Monet specified that the pond would serve “for the pleasure of the eyes and also for the purpose of having subjects to paint” (quoted in…

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…

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….

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…

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…

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…

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…
