Description & Technical information

This sun-drenched painting is set in the countryside around Cassis, a town on the
Mediterranean coast in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southern
France. Sharp's training and practice as a plein air painter and her absorption
of the Impressionists’ use of colour and light brought freshness and
spontaneity to paintings such as this. She was also known for her paintings of
women and children, and this idyllic scene of mother and child exploring a
hillside lush with grass and spring flowers, while surrounded by wandering
goats and their young, is an outstanding example of this subject.
