Here’s a theme. Laundry blowing on a clothesline. I was wondering to myself why so many artists have used this theme.
I guess it’s the play of light on the moving subject…the opportunity for interesting compositions…the romanticism of the sweet smell of sun dried clothes and women doing the work.
The artists included here are John Singer Sargent, William Merritt Chase, John Sloan, NC Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth, Gustave Caillobotte.
