  • Boulevard Saint-Denis, Argenteuil, in Winter

    1875

    Claude Monet, French, 1840–1926

    Description

    The Impressionist interest in specific effects of light and weather is evident in Monet's rendering of the exact moment in which the sun struggles to break through a light snowfall. He made a preparatory sketch for this painting; clearly, careful deliberation lay behind his seemingly spontaneous technique. The subject of falling snow and the figures with umbrellas are reminiscent of Japanese woodblock prints, which had a strong influence on Impressionist artists.

  • Skating

    about 1830–40

    Thomas Birch, American (born in England), 1779–1851 American

    Description

    Thomas Birch moved from England to the Philadelphia area in 1794. He learned to paint from his father, William Russell Birch. The younger Birch became well known for a variety of subjects, including seascapes; views of country estates, harbors, and rivers; and naval battle scenes from the War of 1812.
    Although he had exhibited a few "winter pieces" from 1811 to 1813 at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, in the 1830s Birch made winter landscapes one of his specialties. These scenes were based on seventeenth-century Dutch paintings that he had studied in his father's art collection. In "Skating," leafless trees are silhouetted against a gray winter sky that occupies half the canvas, a typical feature of Dutch landscapes. A horse-drawn sleigh full of warmly dressed travelers crosses a bridge near a group of farm houses. The most animated figures are the ice skaters. One stoops to put on his skates, while others beckon to the young skater on the bank of the frozen stream. It is interesting that all Birch's skaters are boys. Although skating was considered an appropriate and healthful outdoor activity, for a long time it was a sport restricted to boys, and it was not until the 1850s that girls were commonly seen on the ice.

    This text was adapted from Carol Troyen and Janet Comey, "Children in American Art" (Nagoya/Boston Museum of Fine Arts, 2007, in Japanese).

  • The Sleigh Ride

    about 1845

    James Goodwyn Clonney, American (born in England), 1812–67...

    Description

    In "The Sleigh Ride," a young girl sits on a sled harnessed to a dog in imitation of an adult's horse and sleigh. A boy, probably her brother, hands her a stick which she pretends is a horsewhip. Like children of today, youngsters of the mid-nineteenth century often played by mimicking adult behavior. The wooden sled was a popular toy, and children of both sexes went sliding or coasting as soon as snow conditions were favorable. Dogs, of course, were common pets, and caring for pets was thought to be good training for children.
    James Clonney, who had come to the United States from England as a young man, was among the first generation of genre painters. His simple and uncluttered pictures generally have few figures and are mildly humorous. He was reasonably popular in his own day, but he fell out of favor until rediscovered by the American art collector Maxim Karolik in the 1940s. Karolik considered "The Sleigh Ride" an archetypal expression of American daily life. He bought it and several other paintings by Clonney and gave them to the MFA as part of his great collection of nineteenth-century American art.

    This text was adapted from Carol Troyen and Janet Comey, "Children in American Art" (Nagoya/Boston Museum of Fine Arts, 2007, in Japanese).

  • Head of an athlete

    probably A.D. 50–75

    Description

    This head of a youth represents an athlete: around his head he wears both a cord (perhaps to hold his hair) and a ribbon, presented by an admirer. He may have been a boxer, as his ears appear swollen.
    Classicistic creation inspired by Greek sculpture of about 460 B.C. Head of an athlete. Has cavities for inserted eyes. Hair treated with fine lines, tied into small knot on top of forehead. His headband is doubled; a cord holds his hair in place, and above is a ribbon awarded for athletic prowess. His puffy ears mark him as a boxer. Missing: nose and inserted eyes. The eyes were originally inlaid in another material

    Scientific Analysis:
    Harvard Lab No. HI720: Isotope ratios - delta13C +5.13 / delta18O -2.95, Attribution - Paros 1, Justification - White with gray shadow, fine to medium grained marble.

  • Snow at Argenteuil

    about 1874

    Claude Monet, French, 1840–1926

    Description

    Painted not far from his house in Argenteuil, and likely begun outdoors, this work demonstrates Monet's interest in the changing effects of light and weather. Primed with a light-gray ground, the canvas can be seen through some of the thinly applied brushstrokes, while quick dabs of pigment and larger sweeps of color define the objects and the people. The path situates the viewer in the scene. The fence and meadow act as a framing device, so that like the pedestrians (and like the artist himself, as he painted) we can feel the cold, damp air and falling snow. Monet's decision to depict a snowfall in progress, and not simply a winter scene of fallen snow, reflects the influence of Japanese Ukiyo-e prints.

  • Virgin and Child with Saint John the Baptist

    about 1500

    Sandro Botticelli, Italian (Florentine), 1444 or 1445–1510

    Description

    Botticelli was renowned for the refinement and sweet delicacy of his figures. Patronized by the leading families of Florence, he also received important public commissions and ran a large workshop with many assistants. This painting, intended for private devotion, possesses characteristics of Botticelli's later manner-a certain stiffness in the profiles and drapery folds, a continued elegance as in the hands of the Virgin and Saint John, and such improvised details as the free painting of roses on top of the lilies originally sketched at right.

  • Boston Common at Twilight

    1885–86

    Childe Hassam, American, 1859–1935

    Description

    Childe Hassam, the son of a Dorchester hardware merchant, had made only one trip to Europe before painting Boston Common at Twilight. He studied French art in Boston collections, and he was familiar with the popular work of painters active in Paris, like Jean Béraud and Giuseppe de Nittis, who took modern life as their main subject and frequently depicted fashionable young women in urban settings. Hassam adapted their French aesthetic to his native city and began a series of large canvases representing several of Boston’s developing neighborhoods: Back Bay, the South End, and Park Square.
    Originally an open field for cattle grazing and military parades, the Boston Common had been transformed into an oasis of elm trees and graceful promenades by the time Hassam painted it in the mid-1880s. He chose a view of the Tremont Street Mall, one of five broad tree-lined walkways that provided Boston pedestrians with an elegant alternative to the city’s noisy thoroughfares. The artist doubtless enjoyed it himself, for his studio was just across the street.

    Despite the old-fashioned charm Boston Common at Twilight presents to viewers today, in Hassam’s time this scene was distinctly modern. Once an area of elegant residential row houses, many of the streets around the Boston Common recently had been transformed into a lively business district. The red brick buildings visible at left were mostly new; the traffic of trolley cars and carriages on the road marks the bustling commerce of late afternoon; and artificial light glows from streetlights and storefronts. Hassam enhanced his impression of the fast pace of city life by using a perspective scheme in which the vertical lines of the fence, the lampposts, and the trees recede rapidly into the distance, coming closer and closer together.

    Hassam contrasted the hurried movement at left with the calm quiet of the snowy park. A stylishly dressed young mother and her child pause to feed the birds while other figures stroll through the rosy dusk. Hassam used a variety of reds to unify his composition, bringing the rusty brick buildings, the glow of the lamps, and even the brilliant end of a lit cigarette in the hand of a passerby into harmony with the sunset sky and the pinkish snow. The artist’s interest in contemporary subjects and in different kinds of light allies this painting with Impressionism, but in Hassam’s gentle vision of the city, nature humanizes the modern world.

    This text was adapted from Elliot Bostwick Davis et al., American Painting [http://www.mfashop.com/9020398034.html], MFA Highlights (Boston: MFA Publications, 2003).

  • Entrance to the Village of Vétheuil in Winter

    1879

    Claude Monet, French, 1840–1926

    Description

    In Vétheuil, a town farther down the Seine than Argenteuil and hence still untouched by signs of modernity, Monet painted no suburban gardens or sailboat regattas. A sweep of country road leading into the village, bordered by messy stretches of grasses and weeds sodden with melting snow, takes up the bottom half of the picture. The eye is not held by the colors and texture present in the foreground but rushes past, only to be stopped by the phalanx of houses constituting the village, their rectilinear forms hastily sketched in blue. Perspective here is exaggerated, with the point of view chosen so that the roadway covers what seems a disproportionate area of the canvas. Monet could have seen such a composition in nineteenth-century Japanese woodblock prints that were being imported in France in large numbers.

  • Window with Eight Apostles, the Pietà, and other Saints

    about 1420–35

    Description

    [inscription] The glass, now in modern stonework designed after measured drawings from Hampton Court, consists of four large perpendicular lights with trefoil tops, three rectangular tracery lights with protrusions at the top and bottom, and six small triangular tracery openings. The main lights show eight Apostles arranged in two rows. Each apostle stands on a dais between the shafts of a canopy above. There is an extra row of canopies at the bottom. In three-quarter view, the Apostles, who seem to be based on two cartoons, turn to different sides. They hold attributes, and above their heads are long scrolls with inscriptions from their Creed. They stand against blue or red grounds with acanthus scrolls resembling seaweed in reserve. Their tunics are blue or red; clear glass with paint and silver stain is used for their heads, mantles, halos, at tributes, and canopies. From left to right, beginning with the top row, the Apostles are: Peter, Andrew, James Major, John, Bartholomew, Matthias, James Minor, Simon. In the three tracery lights are figures represented under fragmentary canopies: Pieta (center), Saint John the Baptist wearing a hair coat with a camel's head (left; inscribed S[AN]C[TU]S IOH[ANNES] BAPTISTA), and Saint Francis showing the stigmata (right; inscribed S[AN}C[TUS] FRANCISCUS0). The grounds are blue or red with acanthus, and the figures are colored by silver strain, except for Saint Francis, whose robe is painted brown. In the small triangular openings are frontal busts of angels in grisaille.
