Description

A small but color-drenched Impressionist oil sketch of a pathway leading through a lush landscape, an oak tree in the right of the canvas reaching toward a sky mosaicked in evening colors. Minerva Josephine Chapman was known for her miniature paintings on ivory and canvas, especially of landscapes, still lifes, and portraits. Within her small matrices Chapman powerfully captured atmosphere and mood, creating glimpses of worlds in which the viewer could immerse themselves. In this tranquil yet lively untitled landscape, we can imagine a warm spring evening with the scent of new grasses and the sounds of birds returning from their daily routines.
