Pierre-Auguste Renoir-The Seine at Chatou

Pierre-Aguste Renoir paints this radiant landscape of the Seine at Chatou with carefully differentiated brushwork. Long, feathery strokes of the waving grasses make their way into small, thick touches for the flowering trees. A number of Renoir’s other artworks were painted Near this same spot, which was a favorite of the artist.

Emile Claus-The Asters

In his painting, The Asters , Emile Claus lovingly and masterfully combined the style of French Impressionists with his own attention to light and atmosphere. The careful gradation of the neutral sky seems to indicate that the sun is low and the grasses are shady from the cover of trees and structures, yet the flowering bushes and reeds reach high enough to glow with a warm backlight.

Childe Hassam-Harney Desert Landscape

Harney Desert Landscape by Frederick Childe Hassam captures the feelings of summer perfectly. Hassam was an American Impressionist painter who, along with Mary Cassatt and John Henry Twachtman, introduced America to the Impressionist movement. You can almost feel the gentle breezy on your skin as the sun is shining down.
