Morning Madonna


Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (1475-1564), The Manchester Madonna and Child with St John and Angels c 1497

In this blog, I try to begin each day with a painting of the Madonna & Child. It centers me; connects me to the past; & encourages me to post some of the religious paintings which were a large part of the core of early Western art.  In the 4C, as the Christian population was rapidly growing & was now supported by the state, Christian art evolved & became grander to suit new, enlarged public spaces & the changing contemporary tastes of elite private clients.

Women in Gardens - American Richard Edward (or Emil Miller) 1875–1943


 Richard Edward Miller (American painter, 1875-1943) Afternoon Tea in the Garden


Richard Emil Miller (1875-1943), American decorative Impressionist painter, studied at the St. Louis School of Fine Arts, & then sailed for Paris to study at Academie Julian (1898–1901).  Paris was the art capital of the 19C. Its museums, exhibition spaces, art academies, & the manner in which the arts were perceived as an integral part of everyday life drew painters, sculptors, & architects from around the world to the French capital. As the painter Cecilia Beaux expressed it, "Everything is there." Miller became part of the “Giverny Group,” the 2nd generation of mostly American artists to study & paint near the gardens created at his home by Claude Monet. Here are a few of Miller's women in gardens.
