Victorian Art Appreciation: La Joie des choses by Armand Point


La Joie des choses/The joy of things, 1884
by Armand Point (1860 - 1932)

Painting of a young lady walking through a sunlit field with an expression of quiet happiness on her face as she gently runs her fingers through the soft, nodding heads of wildflowers along her path. I love the bright splash of orange ribbon around the straw hat that she is carrying in her right hand. It really stands out against the mainly muted colours in the rest of the painting. I found the original file on Wikimedia here but you can also download my colour-enhanced version (5" x 7" @ 300 ppi JPEG) without a watermark here. Great as a cover for a journal or a scrap book but you could also use it as a note or greeting card.
