The Meadow at Graves Near Villerville Notecard
A keepsake notecard or stunning stationery for a lovely note, this notecard features a drawing by Charles François Daubigny (1817–1878).
Daubigny’s commitment to working outdoors, on land or from a boat, was much admired by the younger generation of artists who would come to be known as Impressionists. Le Pré des Graves is a meadow in the coastal community of Villerville in Calvados, Normandy, near where the Impressionists began to work in the 1870s. Daubigny found its forms alluring and depicted the windswept trees and long grasses in paintings and etchings, in daylight and moonlight, during the years 1874–75.
This notecard is a product made to complement the exhibition Into the Woods: French Drawings and Photographs from the Karen B. Cohen Gift on view at the Morgan Library & Museum June 16 through October 23, 2023.
