This is one of my favorites by Robinson, who was among the earliest American painters to adopt the new style of the French Impressionists. It’s one of those paintings that you could divide up into a number of smaller compositions that would all work brilliantly.

I love the range of hues he’s expressed in the stone of the bridge, and the scumbled, broken color throughout.

  1. Ich schaue total gerne "Menschen, Tiere und Doktoren", aber wenn dann ein Tier eingeschläfert werden muss, fange ich auch an zu weinen und schalte weg :( Das ist dann auch nichts für mich. Aber Spinnen und anderes Krabbelgedöhns (ausser Marienkäfer) können/müssen sterben! Davor habe ich richtigen Ekel – bah!
