Charles Courtney Curran | Lady with a Bouquet (Snowballs) 1890

The genre painter Charles Courtney Curran is best known for his canvases depicting beautiful ladies in pleasant settings.
Here, a young woman–the artist’s wife Grace Wickham Curran - arranges a bouquet of snowballs, pausing to take in their sweet fragrance.
The small scale of the painting matches the intimacy of the moment.
Her delicate features, light green shawl and blossom-like hat equate her to a flower, suggesting that she is as lovely and dainty as the blooms she savors. Curran’s choice of flower is likely a deliberate one.
At the time this work was painted, bouquets were used to convey messages, with each flower having a specific symbolic meaning.
According to the Victorian "language of flowers", the snowball symbolized thoughts of heaven, adding an air of Christian piety to this work. | © Birmingham Museum of Art

Eastman Johnson | At the Closing of the Day, 1878-80

Beginning in 1870 Eastman Johnson (American painter and co-founder of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City, 1824-1906) produced a string of anecdotal narrative subjects depicting daily life on the island of Nantucket, Massachusetts.

In the years after the Civil War, Johnson drew upon the visual character of the island and its inhabitants to portray everyday scenes which rank among the artist's most memorable paintings.
In an effort to find new and relevant subject matter, the painter found inspiration in the quiet whaling community of Nantucket. Johnson relished the island's simple way of life, its setting, and its population which offered models of distinctive appearance and character.

Genre painting

Vincent van Gogh | The reaper after Millet, 1889

Genre painting (or petit genre), a form of genre art, depicts aspects of everyday life by portraying ordinary people engaged in common activities.
One common definition of a genre scene is that it shows figures to whom no identity can be attached either individually or collectively - thus distinguishing petit genre from history paintings (also called grand genre) and portraits.
A work would often be considered as a genre work even if it could be shown that the artist had used a known person - a member of his family, say - as a model.
In this case it would depend on whether the work was likely to have been intended by the artist to be perceived as a portrait - sometimes a subjective question.
The depictions can be realistic, imagined, or romanticized by the artist. Because of their familiar and frequently sentimental subject matter, genre paintings have often proven popular with the bourgeoisie, or middle class.

Albert Lynch | Pittore della Belle Époque

Albert Lynch è stato un pittore Peruviano, nato in Germania ma sempre vissuto in Francia. È considerato, pertanto, un pittore Francese.
Albert Lynch era figlio di Diego Lynch, di famiglia peruviana, e di Adele Bertha Emma Koeffler, di famiglia tedesca (suo padre era il pittore paesaggista Thomas Koeffler).
Non è chiaro se Lynch sia nato a Lima o a Gleisweiler, in Renania (Germania). Sul sito "Benezit Dictionary of Artist" del 2011 (ed anche altri siti), Lynch nacque a Lima (o Trujillo) nel 1851 e morì nel 1912.
Alcuni ipotizzano che, a causa della disfatta di Sedan del 1870 ed il conseguente astio dei francesi per i prussiani, Lynch preferì dichiararsi nato in Perù e non in Germania, anche se la documentazione indica che fu battezzato a Gleisweiler. Ma la sua totale permanenza in Francia e la sua cultura prettamente francese ne fanno, in realtà, un artista decisamente francese.

Сидоров Станислав Николаевич 1954 | Russian Genre painter
While he is capable of working in different genres, one of his favorites is an architectural motive. He likes small towns' secluded streets and old architecture. They inspire nostalgia about previous generations, events and cultures. His work shows remarkable depth and saturation with feeling, both of these are so often missing from a lot of other contemporary paintings. Whether it is a portrait, a genre, a landscape or a still-life, all of these are withing the Stan's' capability range, touching one's soul, challenging one's mind, and not allowing the beholder remain indifferent. Stanislav's work is displayed in both public and private collections throughout Russia, China, Japan, Spain and the United States. Through the media of oil, pastels and charcoal, his works capture the beauty, wonder and emotion of the human experience. Stanislav stands for real fine art as opposed to Mass Production. Although the freedom and many rewards of the artistic profession are enjoyable, each painting is born "in hard labor", and only then it may claim to be called "a work of art".
