Charles Courtney Curran - Pintura a óleo
O primeiro impressionista americano Charles Courtney Curran (nascido em 1861 em Hartford, Kentucky) era memorável tanto por seus elegantes retratos internos e externos de mulheres e crianças, quanto por seu papel de liderança na Cragsmoor Art Colony. Ele foi um pintor prolífico e popular durante toda a sua vida e esteve entre os artistas responsáveis pelo renascimento da tradição do gênero na arte americana do final do século XIX. As pinturas icônicas de Curran com graciosas jovens mulheres vitorianas e eduardianas em vestidos esvoaçantes em contraste com a vasta extensão de paisagens românticas cativaram os críticos de arte e o público, bem como seus contemporâneos. Assim como seus colegas impressionistas americanos Mary Cassatt, Edmund Charles Tarbell e Frank Weston Benson, Currant passou um tempo em Paris, o centro do mundo da arte, onde estudou com Jules Lefebvre em 1889. Essa experiência foi considerada essencial para os artistas americanos com um sonho de se destacar. Como resultado, não é difícil ver a influência de impressionistas franceses como Monet em seu trabalho.
Ao retornar de Paris aos Estados Unidos, o artista se estabeleceu em Nova York e começou a lecionar no Pratt Institute e na Art Students League. Em 1903, o colega artista e amigo Frederick Dellenbaugh convidou Curran para visitar Cragsmoor, um florescente centro de arte de verão localizado ao longo de um planalto nas montanhas Shawangunk do Vale do Rio Hudson. Cativado pela paisagem e pela atmosfera criativa, Curran montou uma casa de verão e um estúdio e logo se estabeleceu como uma figura central da colônia de arte, pintura e ensino.
As técnicas impressionistas de Curran utilizando pinceladas soltas e uma paleta vívida combinadas com seu tema nostálgico resumem a beleza do verão de Cragsmoor. Esta representação alegre de crianças pegando peixinhos em águas rasas é um exemplo maravilhoso de cenas da vida rural.
Por quase trinta anos, até sua morte em 1942, Curran dividiu seu tempo entre Cragsmoor e a cidade de Nova York. Ele continuou a pintar e manteve cargos de ensino no Pratt Institute, Cooper Union e na National Academy. Além de seu papel como líder da Cragsmoor Art Colony, Curran permaneceu um membro ativo da American Water Color Society, da Society of American Artists e do National Arts Club.
