Glad you enjoy them, Celeste. Lately I've been doing my posts while Jeanette makes the oatmeal. If there are a few milessplings it's because the first cup of coffee hasn't taken effect yet.Wendy, yes, he was the master of handling reds. Red isn't an easy color to use in light and shadow, because if you make it too light it becomes pink or orange.Rob, I think he pushed the boundaries a bit, even in his own day. His satire is mixed with affection in most of them.Connie, he was known [
as an amazingly charming person. Everyone loved Vibert as a person as well as his paintings.If you all like, I'll do some more posts on him. His watercolors will blow your mind.

What a marvelous post! Thank you so much. The paigitnns are so beautiful as well as delightfully friendly poking fun. I know my art classes were all about the experimental artists rather than the ones who were mainstream in the 1800's and beyond. I'd never heard of any of the great 'story telling' Victorian painters until I got out of school. Alma Tadema and all the rest were relegated to "oh, those were the boring mainstream painters." but they [
were anything but!

That "Cardinal by the Fire" painting looks iniecdrble! the colors alone for the cardinal's uniform leave me speechless; also, the way he painted the pavement, it conveys such a believable depth of field!... too bad for that Rehs Gallery, Inc. watermark: is so distracting. I have looked everywhere on Google, Bing, and another couple of search engine for the same painting with no luck... Why are there so many few paintings of this remarkable artist available on-line?

Elena, Rebecca, B Boylan, and all who are new to Vibert: I'm so glad you enjoy this artist who has been ovklrooeed by the contemporary art establishment. He was really big in his day, and I'm honored to reintroduce him to new eyes. In fact it gives me the delightful feeling of being mildly subversive. The Internet forces everything out into the light, and lends itself to all sorts of wonderful discoveries.
