  • Thomas Cole, American Poet
    the catalogues that accompany exhibitions but I am always interested in finding out even more through additional books and catalogues I usually end up just doing an Amazon search once I am able to get to a computer which is fun in its own right but I love it even more when someone else does the work for me So when it came time to put together the education space for our current exhibition Thomas Cole s The Voyage of Life Margarita and I thought it would be a great idea to put out some great catalogues from past exhibitions on both Cole and the Hudson River School One book we knew we had to include is the compilation Thomas Cole s Poetry edited by Marshall B Tymn I think it s important for visitors to know that in addition to being the founder of the Hudson River School which applied a romantic aesthetic to the uniquely American landscape Cole also advocated for romanticism in his poetry It s interesting to read the poems Cole penned in 1839 and 1840 the years in which he painted The Voyage of Life Many of them speak to the passage of time the change of the seasons and to aging all of which are relevant to the beautiful series of paintings One poem in particular On Another from 1840 stuck out to me for its connection to the paintings but also for its mention of the leaf which is the unofficial symbol of the Dixon Enjoy On Another Beauty doth fade its emblem is a leaf That mingles with the earth in quick decay But virtue like an exaltation bright Springeth from each to heaven and never dies Beauty doth fade as fades the leaf Its summer day is bright but brief But

  • Happy birthday, Berthe Morisot!
    the French countryside where they hoped the fresh air would help restore Eugène s health Morisot painted Peasant Girl among Tulips that spring seeing in the sturdy features of a French peasant girl believed to be named Gabrielle Dufour the fragile beauty of a tulip Morisot consciously rhymed the swirling brushwork in the girl s unadorned dress with the swirling forms of the tulip leaves The wisps of hair curling away from her face are like spent tulip petals about to fall to the ground Even the girl s delightful oval face is shaped like a tulip blossom Her hands stained brown from working in fields connect her to the rural French countryside a virtuous place capable of producing lovely flowers and lovely young girls The first recorded owner of Peasant Girl among Tulips was Tadamasa Hayashi a Japanese art dealer who is often credited with introducing Japanese woodblock prints to Western Europe From Hayashi the painting entered the collection of renowned art collector and connoisseur Théodore Duret one of the most influential voices in Paris Duret befriended several of the leading artists of the late nineteenth century and was the subject of portraits by both Édouard Manet and James Abbott McNeill Whistler His Manet and the French Impressionists was one of the earliest writings on the subject illuminating the movement for people in France as well as England and the United States Peasant Girl among Tulips came into the Dixon collection in 1981 when it was purchased by our first director Michael Milkovich Twenty seven years later in 2008 we received a special companion for this painting a sketch of the same subject by Morisot s daughter Julie Manet pictured below While her mother sketched and then painted this hardworking young woman Julie then just twelve years old sat
