A funny thing happened to me. I first read this thread after returning from a visit to the Appleton Museum of Art in Ocala, FL. (I live in Tallahassee.) While there, my husband and I were both struck by this beautiful painting by Elizabeth Beaugeureau. We talked about it on and off all the way home.
When I read your post I just had to share it.
I did find some other links. I will post them later when I find them in Google.
The Appleton has a really nice 19th Century art collection. They have both Mr. and Mrs. Beaugeureau as well as some other striking pieces.
I found this picture by going to:
On the buttons to the left, go to “Collections”. Then, “Search Collections”
In the Field “Special Collection” , Click “19th Century”. Leave everything else blank. Click Search.
I have tried searching their site under Beaugeureau, but I don’t get any of her paintings that way.
I wish I understood the terminology for the different types of realism better myself. While I have read a bit about art history, I am pretty new to studying the 19th Century paintings.
