The Shepherdess by Evariste Carpentier



This tranquil landscape, depicting a young shepherdess in a state of repose among the cool shadows of the forest setting, is representative of the later work of Evariste Carpentier (Belgian, 1845-1922), as he transitioned from the strong academic conventions of the time to the growing popularization of the impressionistic aesthetic and a focus on nature. Sun dapples through the tree branches, small pockets of golden light that lead the eye throughout the depth of the work; the loose brushstrokes soften the composition and emphasize the overall calmness this painting emotes. Carpentier was a pupil at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp where he earned the prize of distinction 1865, which earned him access to a private studio at the Academy the next year. Carpentier was a successful artist during his lifetime, winning many international prizes and awards, including the golden medals in Antwerp, Berlin, Paris and Barcelona. He made a recognizable contribution at the Academy of Liège, as a professor and then its director, as a representative of luminism in Belgium and shift toward a modern painting aesthetic.
