Speaking — as I was in this Eye Candy post on Peder Mønsted, about paintings that look smoothly refined from a distance, but are wonderfully painterly in detail — here is a summer scene by Daniel Ridgway Knight.

I’m long overdue to write a dedicated post on Knight, who is a personal favorite of mine, and I’ll try to follow up on that before long.

  1. What a beautiful picture! The greens are so neutral and accurate! I am intrigued by the social context of the picture though. What social class are these women – upper, middle, lower? Are they fishing for leisure or to put some trout on the table?
