About The Greens (Seated Woman in a Garden)

The artwork entitled “The Greens (Seated Woman in a Garden)” was created by the artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec in 1891. The medium used is oil on panel, and it adheres to the Post-Impressionism movement. The dimensions of the artwork measure 55 by 46 centimeters. It is a portrait genre piece and is presently held in a private collection.

In the artwork, one observes a woman seated within the lush confines of a garden. The composition radiates with vibrant greens, suggesting the vivacity and depth of the foliage that encompasses her. This woman, the central figure of the piece, is depicted in profile, providing a sense of her contemplative or introspective state. Notable in Toulouse-Lautrec’s work is the characteristically bold strokes and the play of contrasting colors, which impart the image with a textured, almost tactile quality. The application of paint in this work is indicative of the Post-Impressionist movement’s departure from precise representation, favoring instead an emphasis on the artist’s perception and the emotional resonance of the subject.
