Let's go to the park! Conversation in the Jardin du

Let's go to the park! Conversation in the Jardin du Luxembourg (1892) was painted by the Italian artist Vittorio Matteo Corcos. It shows two fashionable Parisian women from the end of the 19th century. At first I thought that they may just have returned from a funeral, but looking in some more detail, it seems that they are just dressed very fashionably. While their dresses are the same, their hats and gloves are different. And the other details also point at a pleasant day in the park for these two upper-class women. Look at the colorful flowers on the right, and the kid playing with the sand in the foreground. The scene takes place in the Jardin de Luxembourg in Paris, and you can still visit this beautiful park today for free. Vittorio Matteo Corcos (1859-1933) was an Italian artist, who specialized in portraits, and achieved international fame during his life for that. He painted many portraits of the European upper class, which are not surprisingly in private collections. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #ItalianArt #ItalianArtist #ItalianPainter #Corcos #Fashion #Fashionable #JardindeLuxembourg #Park #BlackDress #Flowers #Relaxed #Conversation #Portraits #Portrait
