Harpignies paintings added to GeocodedArt

Chateau de Clisson
Painting by Henri Harpignies (1819 - 1916). Trees and riverbanks were more often the subject of Harpignies paintings than man-created structures, and the title of his paintings usually did not identify their precise location. Time is softening the edges of this venerable old redoubt, making it appear more like the soft clouds and gentle foliage that will outlast it. The artist's work at this site shows it as isolated, but not abandoned; today it clearly is so, yet with more activity around then than in years gone by. Harpignies geocoded
