About the Artwork

Charles Courtney Curran, Afternoon in the Cluny Garden, Paris, 1889
Oil on wood panel, 9 1/4 x 12 in. (23.5 x 30.5 cm). Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Bequest of Constance Coleman Richardson, 2002.55

Charles Courtney Curran's subject, the Cluny Museum in Paris, was a popular tourist attraction. Dedicated to the arts of the Middle Ages, the building and garden feature both Roman and Gothic ruins, elements of which appear in the painting. The two women depicted under the shade of a red parasol, perhaps reading guidebooks, are likely participants on the Grand Tour of Europe, a tradition that signaled status and sophistication for wealthy Americans of the period.
