    Lots to love on this page! The richness of colors in Courbet’s fox’s coat, the brilliant colors of winter in Parrish’s landscape, the lovely, sensuous lines of Mucha’s work and I could go on and on! They are all lovely! Thanks for sharing! :)

    The top Twachtman is a particularly good example of his early work. I made the trip down to old lyme hoping to see it on view at the florence griswold (it wasn’t), and was in the end lucky enough to have someone take me in the vault for a quick look at it. It’s a great twachtman, if more academic than most of his work. Really well painted.
