Daubigny's Studio Boat: Life on the Seine
In conjunction with the landmark exhibition Daubigny, Monet, Van Gogh: Impressions of Landscape, the Taft Museum of Art is pleased to present Daubigny's Studio Boat: Life on the Seine, a series of Daubigny's etchings on loan from the collection of Sallie R. Wadsworth.
Rivers take center stage in many of Daubigny's landscape paintings. In 1857, the French artist purchased a 28-foot ferry boat and converted it into a studio and houseboat from which he could observe and paint the river both day and night. Daubigny kept a visual diary of ink and wash drawings of daily life on the studio boat for his friends and family to enjoy. He published a selection of these drawings as etchings in 1862.
This exhibition features all 15 etchings, which reveal the rustic and informal life on his boat. Scenes of fishing, cooking, sleeping, and painting are infused with humor and charm, and suggests aspects of Daubigny's private life and personality.
