Description of this painting
The painting "Lobster and Le Figaro" by William Harnett is a masterpiece of 19th century American realism. This artwork is a detailed and realistic rendering of a lobster, a bottle of wine, and a sheet music from Mozart's opera "Le Figaro."
The composition of the painting is impressive, with the lobster placed in the center of the image and the wine bottle and opera score strategically placed around it. The attention to detail is impressive, from the textures of the lobster to the labels on the wine bottle.
The use of color in the painting is also notable. The warm tones of the lobster contrast with the cool tones of the wine bottle and sheet music, creating a sense of balance and harmony in the image.
The story behind the painting is fascinating. Harnett was known for his still life and still life paintings, and this particular work was created in 1888, during a period of great success for the artist. The painting was acquired by art collector Charles Lang Freer, who donated it to the Freer Museum of Asian Art in Washington DC.
In addition to its beauty and technique, there are little-known aspects of the painting that make it even more interesting. For example, the lobster in the painting is believed to have been fired and painted to appear fresh, demonstrating the level of detail and realism that Harnett sought in his works.
In short, "Lobster and Le Figaro" is an impressive work of art that combines the technique of realism with the beauty of a still life. Its composition, color, and attention to detail make it a 19th-century masterpiece, and its little-known history and aspects make it even more fascinating.
