Shortly after he turned to landscape subjects in the late 1850s, Martin Johnson Heade began to gravitate to the lowland coastal salt marshes of the American Northeast, making his studies of the sites in the summer and early fall, when the harvesting of grass and hay took place. Finding the horizontal lines and shifting atmosphere of the salt marshes visually appealing, he produced more than a hundred views of them over the course of his career. Here Heade captured the changing effects of light...

Samuel F.B. Morse was at the peak of his career when he portrayed Jonas Platt, who is presented as a soberly dressed man of affairs, with book and documents nearby, facing us in a confident yet thoughtful manner. The drapery and glimpse of sky are scaled-down elements drawn from grandmanner portraiture and signal Platt's prominence. The sitter and artist were both active in politics and concerned with the application of scientific and technological advances to national purpose. Platt had been...

Fascinated by Dutch painting, Boudin made frequent voyages to the Netherlands to paint its cities and countryside. The artist visited Dordrecht several times, eventually completing dozens of works devoted to the city. He painted several views of the Grote Kerk from a number of points of view—here, from a canal. Boudin’s practice of painting a motif from several viewpoints proved influential to his younger colleague Claude Monet, who later became known for his series of paintings devoted to...

Lured by the tranquil waters and hidden corners of riverscapes, Daubigny began to explore the river valleys outside Paris in the late 1850s from Le Botin , his floating studio. For this scene, Daubigny selects a viewpoint in the center of the waterway, looking down a long stretch of the river and up toward the bank where herdsmen coax their cattle onto a barge. The still water and the reassuringly peaceful coexistence of man and nature made such paintings highly popular with Daubigny’s urban...

The influence of William Trost Richards is evident in this work’s coastal subject matter, careful execution, and vaporous atmospheric effects. Parton studied with Richards in Philadelphia from 1859 to 1861 and remained close with the elder artist throughout his life, even going on a sketching expedition with him in the Adirondacks.

The detalls—various art objects and antiques offered for sale—signal the antiquarian interests that Chase developed while abroad. The Antiquary Shop anticipates Chase's paintings of the lavishly decorated New York studio that he established on his return.

Called “Lo Spagnoletto” (the little Spaniard) by his Italian clientele, the Spanish-born and trained Ribera made his career in Naples, where his major patron, the Duke of Osuna, served as viceroy to the Spanish Bourbon rulers of southern Italy. Following a Spanish tradition initiated by the famed painter El Greco (1541–1614), Ribera painted individual portraits of Christ’s intimates, including his father Saint Joseph and his disciples. According to apocryphal sources, suitors for the...

Saint James Major was one of Christ's apostles and the patron saint of pilgrims, those devoted and adventurous Christians who made their way over hundreds of miles to the Holy Land or to the chief pilgrimage churches of Europe. Their connection with James arose from the belief that the apostle had traveled across the Mediterranean as far as Spain to found the famous church Santiago (Spanish for Saint James) de Compostela. The seashell, symbolizing that voyage, and the staff are the saint's...

Donato dei Bardi worked in Genoa, a city that had close ties to France in the early fifteenth century and where the artist could familiarize himself with the smooth surfaces and intricate details of Franco-Flemish painting. The refined qualities of hair and fur in the figure of Saint Jerome reflect Donato’s inspiration from Northern painting. Saint Jerome is often shown in a cardinal’s robe and hat to reflect his work for the Church. The open book and the pen refer to the saint’s...

Arnold Böcklin was one of many artists lured to Italy to sketch and paint the light-bathed countryside in and around Rome. Unlike Hubert Robert and Pierre Thuillier (whose works are also shown here), who found inspiration in timeworn monuments, the Swiss painter did not seek out famous landmarks but preferred rustic sites seemingly untouched by man. Although Böcklin includes the figure of a bather disrobing in the middle ground, her tiny form primarily underscores the vastness of nature, seen...
