Adolphe Borie, In the Garden
MediumOil on canvas
Credit LineMuseum purchase, 2012
Dimensions29 3/4 x 22 in.
A Philadelphia native trained locally and abroad, Borie advocated for an embrace of French painting. Here a young woman sits quietly on a bench in a verdant garden. Borie’s loose brushstrokes suggest the forms of her dress and background foliage. Sunlight falls in brilliant color, as on the hat and blooms. Here, the artist unmistakably embraces the subject, technique, and aims of the French Impressionists.
