About Jasmine

The artwork titled “Jasmine” was created by artist Albert Joseph Moore in 1893 in the United Kingdom. This oil on canvas painting adheres to the Academicism art movement and qualifies as a genre painting. It measures 50.1 x 66.6 cm and, as of the last information available, it is held in a private collection.

“Jasmine” by Albert Joseph Moore depicts a tranquil scene of a woman reclining languorously on a plush red couch. She is dressed in a flowing white gown with delicate pink drapery cascading around her. The woman’s pose suggests that she is in a state of peaceful repose or perhaps asleep. Her head is gently tilted to one side, resting on a pillow with eyes closed and an arm draped over the edge of the couch, emphasizing a sense of relaxation.

The backdrop consists of a decorative tiled wall with a floral motif and a draped cloth, adding to the composition’s rich texture and depth. In the foreground, there is a vase containing vibrant flowers placed on a checkered floor, providing a contrast to the soft and warm tones of the couch and the figure’s garments. The presence of the jasmine flowers, scattered on the floor around the vase and the woman, likely gives the painting its title.

The artist’s attention to detail is evident in the rendering of the fabrics’ weights and textures. The folds and creases in the gowns and drapery are rendered with precision, which, along with the serene expression of the subject, contributes to the overall calm and contemplative atmosphere of this work. Moore’s painting is a fine example of the sophisticated elegance often depicted in genre paintings of the Academic art tradition.
