The Artist’s Son and Sister in the Garden at Sèvres: Marie Bracquemond

The Artist’s Son and Sister in the Garden at Sèvres is an 1890 painting by French Impressionist artist Marie Bracquemond.

This picture is part of the ample visual evidence for the artist’s breaking with the tradition of the old masters as taught her by her husband Félix.

The arrangement of her son and sister in the space is informal and asymmetrical, in defiance of a more orderly classical tradition. Equal weight is given spatially, especially on the left, to the surrounds of the garden in the colors and tones of which Bracquemond glories.

The painting is in a private collection.
