1. La Halte forcée par Alexandre Antigna (French, 1817-1878)

    Oil on canvas, 1855, 207,5 x 156 cm. Musée des Augustins, Toulouse, France.

    ..La Halte forcée, en décrivant une misérable carriole attelée d’un cheval plus misérable encore et succombant de fatigue et de froid, aborde les problèmes du chômage, de l’exode rural, tous ces bouleversements sociaux induits par la révolution industrielle et le machinisme. Le réalisme  d’Antigna, renforcé par la vérité des couleurs proches du monochrome, intensifie encore le sentiment du tragique, ose jusqu’à la mise en accusation de la fatalité présente et incarne le refus de toute résignation..

  13. Orchid and Hummingbirds by Martin Johnson Heade (1819-1904)

    ..Heade travelled in Brazil from 1863 to 1864, where he painted an extensive series of small works, eventually numbering over forty, depicting hummingbirds. He intended the series for a planned book titled “The Gems of Brazil”, but the book was never published due to financial difficulty and Heade’s concerns about the quality of the reproductions. Heade nevertheless returned to the tropics twice, in 1866 journeying to Nicaragua, and in 1870 to Colombia, Panama, and Jamaica. He continued to paint romantic works of tropical birds and lush foliage into his late career. (wikipedia)
