Hoschede-Monet, Blanche (1865-1947) View 1 Item
Trained by Claude Monet, Blanche Hoschede-Monet was said to follow his techniques so faithfully that scholars sometimes have difficulty telling her work from his. What is evident in a painting like Giverny, le seule et la rosarie is Hoschede-Monet's staunch conformity to Impressionist techniques including high key colors and broken brushwork utilizing heavy impasto. The painting thereby communicates the sensation of nature through its texture as well as its loosely organized but brightly colored forms. Blanche's mother Alice married Claude Monet after her...

Howe, Nancy (1950) View 1 Item
In 1991, renowned wildlife artist Nancy Howe became the first female artist honored by the U.S. Department of the Interior's Federal Duck Stamp Program for her painting of a pair of king eider ducks exploring the sub-arctic tundra.

Over the years, Howe has continued both to win artistic awards and to donate her time, energy, and art to charitable enterprises. Born in New Jersey in 1950,...

Inness, George (1825-1894) View 2 Items
Born on May 1, 1825 in Newburgh, New York, George Inness was the son of a grocer from New York City. With little formal training, his professional career began with imitations of Thomas Cole, the father of the Hudson River School. Surprisingly successful in that mode at the beginning of his career, Inness had a painting exhibited at the National Academy of Design in 1844 and established his own studio in New York by 1848. But critical acclaim eluded him. In 1851, Inness decided to...

Jacque, Charles Emile (1813-1894) View 1 Item
Charles Jacque was one of a group of early nineteenth-century French artists (and later their American followers) who would eventually become known as the Barbizon School for the village on the edge of the Forest of Fontainebleau where most of them gathered to paint. The movement began as a reaction against the dictates of the academic art establishment. Academic standards of the time were based upon the neo-classicism of the 18th century and insisted upon a polished finish, muted colors, historical or genre...
