Times of the Day, Night Analysis
Four Times of the Day, Night is the fourth in a series of four 1757 landscape paintings by French artist Joseph Vernet, depicting different scenes at different times of the day. A man fishes in the moonlit water of the foreground while music and song take over from labor in this painting.
A large ship makes its way to the port and signifies the general human repose and sport. A central tree is windswept and the clouds swiftly pass. The flux of the sky is opposed to the recreation of the tired men and women.
Joseph Vernet: Four Times of the Day, Night, along with the other three works in this series, is held at the Art Gallery of South Australia in Adelaide.
