Times of the Day, Evening: Joseph Vernet

Joseph Vernet: Times of the Day, Evening

Four Times of the Day, Evening is the third in a series of four 1757 landscape paintings by French artist Joseph Vernet, depicting different scenes at different times of the day. The storm and stress of the day have passed, Vernet presents us with a bathing scene in the gentle light of evening that is in a natural and picturesque landscape. A sense of social togetherness pervades the bathing scene and the classical landscape shows ease between man and nature.

Joseph Vernet: Four Times of the Day, Evening, along with the other three works in this series, is held at the Art Gallery of South Australia in Adelaide.
