Best known for his paintings of vacationers on the beaches of the village of Trouville, Boudin was himself somewhat ambivalent about the idle nature of his subjects. The true focus of his paintings was natural light. As he wrote in a letter to a friend, "Should I confess it? This beach at Trouville which used to be my delight, now, since my return, seems like a frightful masquerade….When you’ve just spent a month among people devoted to the rough work of the fields, to black bread and water, and then you see again this bunch of gilded parasites who have so triumphant an air, it strikes you as pitiable and you feel a certain shame in painting such idleness. Fortunately…the Creator has spread out everywhere his splendid and warming light, and it is less this society that we produce than the element which envelops it." [Label copy from Monet: Vision and Process exhibition, 2018] Boudin’s method of painting beach scenes en plein air (“in the open air”) is linked to the work of the Impressionists. His attention to rendering the changes in natural light caused by weather and the time of day had a particular influence on the early work of Claude Monet. Although best known for his paintings of vacationers on the beaches of the village of Trouville, he was somewhat ambivalent about his subjects. The true focus of his paintings was natural light. As he wrote in a letter to a friend upon his return from Brittany, where he had painted peasants laboring in the fields: “Should I confess it? This beach at Trouville which used to be my delight, now, since my return, seems like a frightful masquerade…When you’ve just spent a month among people devoted to the rough work of the fields, to black bread and water, and then you see again this bunch of gilded parasites who have so triumphant an air, it strikes you as pitiable and you feel a certain shame in painting such idleness.

Markings on the back of the portrait were misleading; the signature for Merrick, an attorney in Wellsboro, PA, probably indicated ownership. Another inscription, “painted from an engraving by George Deming, Wellsboro, Pennsylvania,” most likely led to the interpretation that Deming was the engraver and Merrick was the painter. Thanks to the internet and Ancestry.com, we can now safely say that Deming was the painter, and we can speculate that Merrick purchased it from him.

Silver point was a technique used extensively in the Renaissance and revived in the United States in the late 19th century.

The stylus left a trail of silver on the paper, requiring perfect control by the artist, as this was not a forgiving medium where mistakes could be corrected with an eraser. With exposure to the air, the silver tarnished and created a warm brown tone. Because of the fragility of the silver and the paper, this lovely work is rarely exhibited.

Many Grand Tourists made Powers’ sculpture studio in Florence, Italy, a stop on their travels, to witness the artist at work, view his latest creations, or commission a personal artwork. [Label text from It Came From the Vault exhibition, 2013] Why do portrait busts often have blank eyeballs? Here’s one theory: originally, many ancient Greek and Roman sculptures were painted, including the eyes, but over the years the paint has faded so that by the 19th century, the eyes appeared to be blank. While 19th century artists often modeled their portrait busts of important political figures on these Classical forms, they did not know that the eyes had been painted originally, so they left them blank. Only with current technology has it been possible to understand how the older sculptures actually appeared. The subject of this sculpture, Francis Granger (1792 – 1868), was born a decade after the American Revolution and died right after the Civil War. A congressman from nearby Canandaigua when he posed for this sculpture in 1837, he said: “Now then for a small piece of vanity – Powers, the sculptor, is taking me in clay, to be wrought in marble in Italy next summer.

Usually, the student was given the task of copying a popular print onto specially prepared board. Perhaps Rauschenbusch, who grew up in Rochester, went to a school that taught this technique. Perhaps he kept the drawing with him throughout his life; his signature is on the back, along with the word “Lent.” Perhaps, when he died, the drawing was put out with unwanted papers, or it may have been passed along to a family member, a neighbor, or a friend.

There, customers would arrange to meet one of the courtesans who lived and worked in <em>ageya</em>, or houses of assignation, located on the three cross-streets of the quarter.

Although examples of this technique exist from the Roman period of European history, reverse glass painting was first introduced into Asia in the early 1700s. By the early 1800s, there was a large market for these paintings among European and American traders and travelers to China; most were made by Chinese artists specifically for export to the West. The most popular subjects were portraits, images of children playing at the Imperial palace, and landscape and harbor scenes.

The images on the bowl include wedding portraits of the bride and groom. A group of women on horseback ride toward a fountain in which, on the other side of the goblet, they are shown bathing nude. Reproductions of this iconic Renaissance work represent the revitalization during the late 19th century of Murano’s centuries-long fame as a glassmaking center. One of the earliest figures in this effort was Antonio Salviati, whose adaptation of traditional skills to modern manufacturing processes promoted ornate and highly decorative glass as an accessible art form rather than one limited to the very wealthy. Many of the existing copies are attributed to his manufactory.
