Spring is arriving. Reminiscing by the Pond (1893) was painted by Armand Point (1860-1932) who was born in Algeria, but spent his adult life in France and Italy. It's a contemplative painting, where the lady takes a moment to soak up the smell of spring, thinking of happy moments in her past. The painting combines soft colors with beautiful lighting resulting in a very peaceful work. And have a look at the lines in her dress, as well as the decorative details at the bottom and top of her dress. The purple flowers on her dress match their environment. And then there is a somewhat mysterious reflection of the lady in the water. If you look carefully, you can see a reflection of her on the middle left. It does not appear very realistic, but it is painted in a subtle way and makes me wonder what the artist's intention with that reflection is. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #Algeria #Algerian #AfricanArtist #AfricanPainter #Contemplative #Peaceful #Calming #Relaxing #Reminiscing #Remenisce #LivingintheMoment #YoungLady #Spring #Flowers #Pond #ArmandPoint #Point
