About

Charlotte Buell Coman was a prominent late 19th, early 20th-century landscape artist known for her Tonalist paintings, especially with misty blue coloration. She was a key painter in bringing the Barbizon tradition from France to America. This style and method emanated from a group of painters, led by Jean Corot and Charles Daubigny, who frequented the French village of Barbizon and did plein-air painting in realist style of bucolic subjects such as shepherd girls herding their flocks. It was a revolutionary departure from studio painting and from prescribed academic subjects. In the early 1880s, she returned permanently to New York City from Frence. At that point, she turned away from European subjects and devoted herself to the American landscape, using the Tonalist approach and suggesting spirituality with misty effects achieved with dominance of subdued blues and greens. Frequently her vantage point was looking down into a valley from a high point, a panoramic view on a small to medium size canvas. With her paintings she strove to achieve a sense of quiet, something that many of her artist peers, including George Inness and Alexander Wyant, were doing to counter the crass materialism of the 'Gilded Age' of industrialism. Her work is in the collection of the Met and the National Portrait Gallery.
