Thought I'd share some of the images I've found whilst researching for a painting that I'm about to start, with the subject matter being .... you guessed it; a flower market! I adore the Impressionist style and how the artists of this period captured light and 'mood' so effectively.
Antoine Blanchard's painting is my personal favourite, but I am also intrigued with the story surrounding Marche aux Fleurs by Edouard Leon Cortes ... apparently the painting was left on a pile of donations at Easton, Marylands Goodwill store, at which point one of the staff decided to do some 'digging' as to the origin of the artwork, which resulted in the piece ending up at Sotheby's and selling at auction for $40,600! Whoever had that painting pinned down as 'trash' must be kicking themselves!
