Impressionist Painting Calm Morning in the Style of Frank Weston Benson

About

This painting is a study of a famous painting titled Calm Morning by Frank Weston Benson which is in the collection of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. The artist declared this his best out of door work. In this case Benson was deliberate in his approach and he made three oil studies (possibly this may be one?) before making the final painting. From left to right, his children fish over the side of a boat in the waters of their summer home in Maine. Benson was amazing in capturing the reflection of the boat on the water and the deeper color of its shadow. The vivid, luminous colors depict the sun reflecting on the water and up onto the children. The gorgeous, important, early gold frame has a plaque bearing his name and dates, and his signature is on the painting (see photos). Frank Benson's works are in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. One of the important American Impressionists, Frank Weston Benson is best known for his plein-air paintings of 1898-1920, often painted near his North Haven, ME, home. He is also known for his theme of female figures on a hilltop, which he began in 1903. Along with his friend, Edmund Tarbell, he taught several generations of artists at the BMFA School. He was a member of the Ten American Painters, with whom he exhibited 41 times between 1898 and 1919.
