Masterpieces

Claude and Renee is a lovely 1903 painting by Auguste Renoir.


Vilhelm Hammershoi is an artist I had not been familiar with until the Gallery added this painting into its collection some years ago. Sunshine in the Drawing Room is from 1910.


Hope I is a moody but poignant work by Gustav Klimt, from 1903.


Here we have Iris, an 1890 painting by Vincent van Gogh.


Today I conclude with Meadow and Farm of Jas de Bouffon. This circa 1885-87 painting is by Paul Cezanne.

  1. I think the Van Gogh is my favourite from that selection. Or maybe the Cezanne.

  2. "Hope" looks a bit scary to me.
    "Hope" my Brother finds the card my Dad painted for Mother´s day, it, too, features that flower.

  3. How they dressed little girls looks very cute, but poor thing, how to make sandcastles with that outfit ?

  4. The first painting by Auguste Renoir is a beautiful study of his son and nurse.

  17. I loved all of these, but the Klimt caught my attention from remembering the feeling of having babies changing my own shape...and once I did take a photo of myself with a babe pushing my belly out to that unbelievable protuberance. Out of all that volume comes just this tiny little thing! But this painting is about the forces of beginning of life and endings.
