Artwork Description

This image shows the Tuileries Garden in Paris. Minerva Chapman painted many scenes of Paris, where she lived for a large part of her life. These paintings, characterized by their unusual viewpoints, melancholy tones and painterly brushstrokes were a departure from her more recognized work as a portrait miniaturist.
