At the Piano. Louis Ritman (American, 1889-1963). Oil on canvas.
Known primarily for his sunny, impressionist landscape paintings, often with figures, Ritman earned much of his reputation for the work he produced during the time he was in Giverny, France. His style is both Impressionist and “Intimist,” genteel and reserved in tone, with single figures, especially attractive young women, in confined landscapes and interiors.
