William Baptiste Baird
American Impressionist: Springtime, a sunny path in France 19thC oil painting

circa 1885

About the Item

This beautiful and light filled painting testifies of a new dawn: in the 1880s the landscape and animalier artist William Baird turns to Impressionism. Our Sunny Path, with looser brushwork and lighter colours, convey the fleeting nature of the present. Our lovely oil on canvas may well be homage to Claude Monet - according to Baird's inscription on the stretcher, it was painted in Mantes, which is only about 6 miles from Vétheuil, where Monet was living and working in the 1880s! William Baptiste Baird was born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1847, but as an adult moved to Paris to perfect his painting technique. In Paris, Baird studied under Adolphe Yvon, and exhibited extensively at the Paris Salon from 1872 until 1899. He also exhibited at the Royal Academy in London from 1877 to 1899. In 1877 he gave his address as 47, Bloomsbury Square, London; in 1879 as 20 Cheyne Row, London and from 1883 as 3, Rue Odessa, Paris. Baird worked in various parts of France, in Paris, and Switzerland. Baird was a member of the National Academy of Design, exhibiting there from 1875 to 1879, and at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1878, 1882, and 1883. The size of the canvas alone, measured without the frame is 33 x 46 cm

  • "Rain by the Met" Impressionistic Ashcan School New York City Scene
    By Cindy Shaoul
    Located in New York, NY
    An impressionistic depiction of people walking about near the Metropolitan Museum on a rainy day. A man walks quickly holding a briefcase, a group of woman huddled together under one umbrella; this painting goes back in time as the artist captures the style and trend of the early 20th Century with old cars parked in the distance and fashion of the people. A wonderful piece evoking an emotion bringing us into the past with this whimsical scene. This painting is signed lower left and it comes framed in gold tone frame with hanging wire on verso ready to be displayed. Art measures 16 x 20 inches Frame measures 19.5 x 23.5 inches Inspired by whimsey and purity of the feminine form, Cindy Shaoul is known for her impressionistic and abstract style.
