Beaucoup Burnand

by Matthew Innis |

Since my first posts on the Swiss artist Eugène Burnand late last year, I’ve had the good fortune of discovering more of his artwork, and with each new paintings or drawing of Burnand’s I see, the stronger I feel that he really is one of the better artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He moved from medium to medium and genre to genre with ease, and executed them all with exceptional skill. His pastoral scenes in particular, especially those depicting domesticated farm animals, are exquisite and alone should reserve for him a spot in more art history books.
