KNIGHT R. D.

Daniel Ridgway Knight (1839-1924). American painter.
He was the father of the previous artist. A woman leaning to collect flowers. A banal subject? Yes, maybe. How about the technique? The usual one, the one learned in the academies. Yet the painting is pleasing. Nothing to do with the same poppies painted by Monet, those were red spots vibrating in the sunlight, these are detailed flowers that do not induce us to any visual processing. Light is not corpuscular as you would expect, and perspective depth is the one you know well. So why publish a painter who does not offer anything new? To this question I answer: is it really always something new that we expect from art?
