After that Christmas orgy of William Merritt Chase, I can’t resist adding just a few more paintings by his contemporaries for your viewing pleasure this New Year’s Eve…
James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834-1903)
James Jacques Tissot (1836-1902)
Gustave Leonard de Jonghe (1829-1893)
Edmund Charles Tarbell (1862-1938)
Roberto Fontano (1844-1907)
When I was a child, my mom and I would always play “pick your favorite” about any decorative item, whether it was a painting in a museum or a ballet costume in a performance. So my end of year question: If you could choose 1 painting to own, from this post or any of the others this month (check here, here, here and here), which would it be and why? Please leave me a comment!
Happy New Year all!! Here’s to 2011!!!
