Industrialization and Images of Nature in Nineteenth-Century France
with Dr. Diana Seave Greenwald, Assistant Curator of the Collection, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
Works like the Museum’s A Quiet Corner (1882) by Charles Davis are representative of a much-studied phenomenon in 19th-century art in France and the U.S.: the depiction of rural French life. Drawing on novel data-driven methods from her new book Painting by Numbers: Data-Driven Histories, Greenwald examines the relationship between industrialization and images of nature and the peasantry in art.
