Seamstresses in Fine Art September 29, 2018 Laueano Barrau Bunol (1863-1957) Spanish Read more HERE Read more about Impressionism HERE Related 12 responses to “Seamstresses in Fine Art” What an unusual pose. It is so striking. She is “hunched” over to catch the light from the window and someone came into the room to ask her a question. I see a whole lot more “realism” than “impressionism” in this painting. Is it just me? ….and…I love the painting. Sounds like the “impression” was very “real!” 🙂 Is this oil or could it be chalk pastels? Beautiful! WELL!!!! Lori, too bad that I didn’t know about this feller before my husband passed away!!!! He taught World Geography, and I’m SURE that he would have wanted to see ALL about the tiny island where Mr. Bunol did his finest work!!! Ha. Before today I never knew the place existed!!! ha (He died Jan.23,1983—-MANY years before I had the privilege of “meeting” you!!!!) Maybe he started as an Impressionist artist. I did not see a date for this portrait. Her hairstyle and shirt makes me think 1940’s. Either way it is a stunning portrait. If her eyes were blue I would think it was my mother during WWII I have missed your Saturday “Seamstresses in Fine Art” posts. So glad you’re back. Big smile : ) Looks like my mom in her younger days. I so appreciate you sharing such beauty and educating me with artists I have never heard of before. I want to sit and sew with this person, she looks so open and friendly. Love this portrait. She looks so real! ” Awww,,, you lost your mittens? You sad kittens, go and have some pie anyway…” She is a very sympathetic lady. Wish Bunol was here to paint my family. Comments are closed.
