Reimagining The Landscape: Barbizon to Impressionism

Edouard Pail, Paysage de Sous-Bois, oil on panel, 7.9 x 13.8 inches
One of the great things I love about New York is that while taking a stroll you find wonderful unexpected things. This was the case last weekend when walking on West Broadway with a friend, we passed by a gallery where, through the windows I could see landscapes, and the tittle on the wall; Reimagining the Landscape: Barbizon to Impressionism.

Emile Charles Lambinet, Paturage en Normandie, oil on oak panel, 8.5 x 15.7 inches
Franklin Bowles Gallery represents the work of great artists such as Rembrandt, Matisse, and Picasso. They have put together a museum quality exhibition of beautiful landscapes, a nice treat to find by accident right in the middle of what is the big outdoor mall of SoHo.

Leon Richet, Boisiere dans la Clairiere, oil on panel, 8.3 x 10.2 inches
This post is a small sample of all the works on show, most of the paintings that appealed to me are from the Barbizon School.  This little exhibit is worth seeing first hand. Most of the landscapes are small little jewels which glow within their gold frames.  Enjoy this selection of paintings.

Juste une correction : une des peintures présentées est d'Eugène Antoine Samuel Lavieille (et non pas Lavielle).
