Did you ever make a flower crown? Fille au Jardin was painted around 1900 by the Belgian painter Jenny Montigny (1875-1937), one of the female artists that has been rediscovered lately after she had largely been forgotten for decades after her death. Her technique of small lines of colorful paint, in combination with the colors, create a pretty unique effect. It's part of a style called Luminism (not to be confused with the term that is used to refer to the American landscape painters from the 19th century), and Montigny has created a shimmering effect with her technique here. You have to look carefully to see what is going on, but you can see the girl in the foreground making a chain of daisies, probably to wear as a flower crown. The composition is dominated by the flowers of late spring and early summer, making the people in the background unimportant. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #BelgianArt #BelgianArtist #BelgianPainter #Luminism #Daisies #Flowers #Flower #Colorful #Shimmering #Energetic #OutofFocus #Roses #Crown #Montigny #JennyMontigny #femaleartist #femalepainter
