Description: Among the American artists who treat pastoral subjects, Mr. Ridgway Knight and Mr. Charles Sprague Pearce now occupy a foremost place. For a number of years they have been painting in France-Mr. Knight at Poissy, where he has recently purchased the fine old chateau of the town; and Mr. Pearce at Auvers-sur-Oise. Each has made a study of the Brittany peasant-woman in her relations to the landscape that environs her, each has sought the essential and found it, and each has remained steadfast to the truth without degrading himself with the trivialities of prose. The first person who compared painting and poetry with each other, says Lessing in his famous treatise, "The Laocoon," was a man of fine feeling, who perceived that these arts produced upon him a similar effect; and it is the poetry of women's lives in the fields of Brittany that Mr. Knight and Mr. Pearce offer us, each of them in his own manner, and each without servility to the great contemporaneous master in the same department, Jules Breton, of Courrieres. Charles Sprague Pearce (1851-1915) was an American painter who left his hometown of Boston, Massachusetts and found solace in Europe's ancient traditions and peaceful landscapes. He traveled extensively through Europe and studied under the tutelage of Parisien portraitist, Leon Bonnet. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !
