Who painted this? #11

This week's is going to be a bit of a reward for people who like visiting art museums! I was absolutely stunned by this painting when I saw it for the first time - and if you've seen it too, you won't have any difficulty remembering where!

The quality of both draughtsmanship, painting and the very obvious love for the animals themselves is so self evident.

The reason you're getting a little bit of frame as well is because this is my photograph!

Who Painted This #10 - The Answer
Trompe l'oeil. The Reverse of a Framed Painting
Who Painted this? #10
One wonders how this painting was displayed.  If hung then it reveals the fact that it's a trompe l'oeil.  If left sitting propped against the wall, would one "notice it"?

The description of the work on the website suggests it might at sometime been part of the Royal Danish Cabinet of Curiosities - the royal Kunstkammer which was established in 1650.

I was surprised by how many of you got this right - and the explanations as to how are very entertaining to read and are an education for any of you who are still struggling with this weekly challenge

The first to guess correctly is Sue Smith of Cambridgeshire.  However I'm going to rule her entry 'out of order' this time as her use of her browser and the right click "find similar images" to find its location after she had worked out what it was is not allowed as per the first rule of participation.

However I think I maybe need to make it clearer that your browser counts as software so far as I'm concerned.

Hence the winner is Jim Serrett (Jim Serrett Studio / Pochade Box Paintings) - congratulations Jim!  BTW his blogs make for interesting reading and one or two posts are definitely going to find their way on to this or another blog in the near future!

Others who got the answer correct are:
For the record - I first came across it in the Google Art Project.

Sorry if there are two of my answers. Something seemed to go wrong the first time.
Rosa Bonheur (1822-1899)
"Ploughing in Nevers" 1849 1,34X2,6 m huile sur toile
Musée D'Orsay

Found easily because I knew it was a Bonheur but did not know the title. Googled Rosa Bonheur+cows and found it on Musée D'Orsay site easily.

I knew this immediately because she is a favorite of mine:

ROSA BONHEUR and her PLOUGHING IN NEVERS, painted 1849, oil on canvas, in the Musee d'Orsay.

I knew the painter and name but googled the rest.

Sue said...

I didn't realise I was breaking the rules with the right click for similar images as I had already got the correct image and was looking for the title, however it makes sense so I won't do it again!

No need this time as Google word search for paintings of ploughing brought this up straight away.

It is by Rosa Bonheur
Ploughing in Nevers also called The First Dressing
1849
Oil on canvas
Musee d'Orsay


Labourage nivernais, also called Le Sombrage [Ploughing in Nevers also called The First Dressing]. I wish I could say that I have seen it but I haven't, it looks stunning.

Title "Ploughing in Nevers" also called "The First Dressing.

As I've been planning a trip to Paris next month and therefore wasting time browsing google art project, I actually got this one fairly quickly - It's Rosa Bonheur's Ploughing in Nevers at the Musee D'Orsay. Created 1849, oils on canvas. (http://www.musee-orsay.fr/en/collections/works-in-focus/painting/commentaire_id/ploughing-in-nevers-2040.html?tx_commentaire_pi1%5BpidLi%5D=509&tx_commentaire_pi1%5Bfrom%5D=841&cHash=60f905d6af).

Oddly, despite having been to the gallery on at least three occasions I have no memory at all of this painting. I do, however, have a very clear memory of a stunning Klimt landscape of a rose bush.

Title of the artwork: Labourage nivernais, also called Le Sombrage
Name of the artist who created this artwork: Rosa Bonheur ( 1822-1899),
Date it was created: 1849, 134x260cm
Media used: oil on canvas
Where it lives now: Musee D'Orsay in Paris, ground floor on the left wing side; at least it was there in May 2012

I recognized the painting as soon as I saw it, because I was so faszinated by the look and colour of the top soil. It lokked so fresh, as if the ploughing was done a few minutes ago.
Credits go to my painter friend Susanne Mull, because she actually remembered the artist name and then it was easy to look at the details at the archives of the museum.
