About

This stunning exhibited Edwardian Impressionist oil painting is by noted Scottish artist Alexander Jamieson. Painted in 1906, the setting is the gardens at Versailles palace, France. The impressionist palette and light are stunning. Impressionists love depicting the effects of light and Jamieson has perfectly captured the dappled sunlight around the figures in the foreground and the intense sunshine on the gardens and palace beyond. The composition is a group of well dressed French ladies sat beneath trees as children play ball. In the middle ground is the vivid greens of the gardens interspersed with marble statues and sculptures. In the background, under blue summer's sky is the place of Versailles. A really charming, perfectly balanced composition and an excellent example of Jamieson's work. Signed lower left and dated 1906. Provenance. John Ernest Crawford Flitch (1881-1946), and by descent.
