Year: 20th Century Size: 31.5"x33.5" Medium: Oil Description: Charles Richards was an iconic New Orleans artist whose talent is lesser known only because not as many of his paintings come up for sale as do those of more prolific painters such as George Dureau, Robert Gordy and Ida Kohlmeyer. This delightful pastoral scene is Impressionist in style, with the subject reminding me a bit of Manet's Dejeuner Sur L'Herbe. An almost Van Gogh-looking painter sits against a tree painting a voluptuous nude, in the open air.
