Posted on Updated on

Marie Bracquemond (December 1, 1840 – January 17, 1916) was a French Impressionist artist, who was described retrospectively by Henri Focillon in 1928 as one of “les trois grandes dames” of Impressionism alongside Berthe Morisot and Mary Cassatt.  Her frequent omission from books on women artists is sometimes attributed to the efforts of her husband, Félix Bracquemond. Félix respected his wife’s talents as an artist but disagreed fervently with her adaptation of Impressionist techniques, in particular her use of color.

    I like her work. Those husbands can be very restricting. Mine doesn’t like the smell of turpentine.

      I don’t have a husband so I don’t have to worry about such things.

        I’m very carful with the cleaning cloths being used. They are susceptible to spontaneous combustion. So I store them outside and that does cut down on the odour.

        it also helps prevent spontaneously burning husbands too. I’m sure he appreciates that.

        Impressionism looks like the regular world to me….all I have to do is take of my glasses. I Think Monet had astigmatism. ~~dru~~
