This galley is all Oil on Canvas pieces, with the exception of one painting,done during the Impressionist Era (specifically from 1857-1887).These pieces portray people in natural landscapes that are created through unique brush stroke styles and techniques. Many artist famous artist including Claude Monet and Camille Pissaro and art that ranges from very surreal to more of an open stroke unfinished like aspect. 

This Oil on Canvas painting measuring 56 inches wide and 40 and 1/2 inches tall was painted by Herome Thompson in 1857.This piece depicts a family enjoying a picnic near Mount Mansfield, Vermont. The beautiful scenery is meant to represent what the growing industrialization was starting to replace and what to remind people of how beautiful nature was.
"The Beach at Sainte-Adresse" painted in 1867 by Claude Monet was displaying one of the coastal environments he had grown up knowing. What he was trying to convey through this piece of art was that this used to be a very home oriented beach where people such as fisherman would head out to make a living but due to industrialization became what would call a tourist resort. The painting has great line work casting out over the water to create things such as texture of the water with waves and a vanishing point on the horizon.
A famous painting done by Georges Seurat " A Sunday on La Grande Jatte" done around 1886.This is an extraordinary piece done with strokes of contrary colors horizontally and the rest being pointillism, it really makes you think the amount of time and effort put into this piece. " Interestingly enough this painting was re-stretched to add a blue orange and red pointillism border to distinguish the difference between the painting and the special made frame it's held in.
More a version of Edouard Manet's portraits which would contain two main characters rather than one still shows off an amazing background of trees,bushes, and flowers. Manet preferred two characters due to the possibility of conversation. This piece is specifically about the relationship between this man and his wife. Notice how the wife is looking off while the man is looking at her showing she's detached.
"Poppy Field" by Claude Monet was inspired by his years living in Argenteuil. During this time Monet had started to experiment with plein-air painting which simply means painting outdoors with view of what they are recreating. This piece of art shows 2 pairs of people both including a woman and child strolling through what seems to be a prairie in the summer. What can be saw as flowers are just blobs of paints dabbed onto the canvas which gives a very organic look to them with the natural lighting recreated with shades of greens and blues.
"Peasants' Houses, Eragny" painted by Camille Pissarro in 1887 was more of experimental time in Pissarro's life. From about 1884-1888 he had been using a unique technique known as pointillism. Pissarro had a keene sense of the inner workings of recreating a life image with pointillism which tends to loose realism due to it being seen as one big object but as seen the shadows placed within give somewhat of a 3 dimension affect to things such as the bushes and trees.
"La Récolte des Foins, Éragny" shows the busy haying season, a common work season in rural Éragny. Painted by Camille Pissarro with his own version of pointillism. They say from a distance the color pallet and brush style makes the lighting of the painting seem real and the colors more bold. Though not an oil on canvas this piece is a prime example of the impressionistic time.
Considered to be one of his most famous works "Paris Street; Rainy Day" Gustave Caillebotte depicts the changing environment of Paris' streets. A concept brought into this oil on canvas painting is the somewhat self concealed characters by hiding faces behind umbrellas, which shows how many people tried to remain anonymous at the time.
There's a lot going on in this oil on canvas piece done by Jean-Francois Millet. He depicts gleaners, people who gathered. Specifically to this piece three women are picking up missed corn by the original harvesters. The background shows many other aspects that show that they are the after party to the original harvest with haystacks and carts full.
One of his few impressionist styled paintings "A Game of Croquet" in 1873 Edouard Manet captures what seems so be a casually gathering of friends playing croquet. An interesting fact is that the people are actually his friends,Alfred Stevens,Paul Roudier, and two model Alice Lecouvé and Victorine Meurent.
