Artistic Inspiration #3: Charles Courtney Curran

This is my third weekend of artistic inspiration {every weekend I feature one of my favorite artists. To see previous posts click here and here}. I have eclectic taste, so you never know what or who will turn up!

American Impressionist: Charles Courtney Curran

Charles Courtney Curran was an American Impressionist painter. A prolific and popular painter all his life, he was among the artists responsible for the rebirth of the genre tradition in late nineteenth century American art.

Ever since I had my third daughter, I've wanted to purchase a print of this American Impressionist masterpiece to hang in the hall between their bedrooms.  What a moment in time Curran has captured in this beautiful painting.

  1. This painting really draws me in. I can feel the air and the sunlight and maybe that corset pinching me. . .
