THE ART OF TRANQUILITY

THROUGH AN ARTIST’S EYES

I’ll be away for several days in New York City and the surrounding area, so I won’t be able to take you on our regular virtual mini-exhibition this week.  However, starting this Sunday and through Friday, relax, decompress, and temporarily forget the strain and stress of daily living through an artist’s eyes.  I’ll resume Monday at the Art Museum on November 10.

So here’s a gift of brilliant Nasturtiums from floral connoisseur Parisian Henri Fantin-Latour (1836-1904), just one of his 500 bouquets. Although a friend of the Impressionists (he painted a group portrait that included Monet and Renoir), he created primarily in a realistic, yet lyrical style that was particularly popular with British buyers.
