Franz Rumpler | Pittore di genere

Franz Rumpler (4 dicembre 1848, Tachau - 7 marzo 1922, Klosterneuburg) è stato un pittore di genere e paesaggista Austriaco.
Era il figlio di Johann Baptist Rumpler (1807-1876), intagliatore del legno, e fratello di Johann Rumpler, il Giovane (1845-1918), scultore del legno. Le sue prime lezioni vennero da suo padre.
Dopo aver mostrato un talento insolito, fu inviato a Vienna per ulteriori studi, all'età di quindici anni, e ricevette numerosi premi per il suo lavoro.
Attirò l'attenzione del cardinale Friedrich Prince zu Schwarzenberg e, con il suo sostegno finanziario, poté studiare all'Accademia di Belle Arti con Eduard von Engerth.

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.
