Tuppenceworth.ie 02: The Farm at Lezaven, Finistere by Roderic O’Connor and The Wave by Nathaniel Hone

June 9, 2006

This week (ok, fortnight) the podcast takes in two paintings by Irish Artists influenced by the French Impressionists and working in the 1890s. Conveniently, The Farm at Lezaven, Finistere by Roderic O’Connor and The Wave by Nathaniel Hone hang right beside each other. They’re both to be found in Room 19, Milltown Wing of the National Gallery of Ireland. The Monet painting I mention by way of comparison is Argentuil Basin with a Single Sailboat, painted 1874. It is also on show in the NGI. The Farm at Lezaven, Finistere by Roderic O’Connor and The Wave by Nathaniel Hone (mp3 1.7Mb) Special Note: I can’t speak French, at all. Thus my pronunciation of O’Connor’s painting’s title is comically bad and I had to come up with ways to refer to it other than by name throughout.
