Who Painted This #39 - The Answer
|Kew Gardens: Path between the Pond and the Palm House|
by Camille Pissaro

- Name of the artist who created this artwork: Camille Pissarro
- Date it was created: 1892
- Media used: oil on canvas (unknown dimensions)

The really odd things about this painting is to see a painting of just the beds without either the lake or the Palm House which are both very strong motifs in virtually all images of this part of the garden.
I note the stone fantasy animals (griffin etc) have not yet been erected in front of the Palm House.
Here's a photo I took of the same scene some 119 years later!

It looks as if this one have some people quite a journey to track it down!
Others who also got it right - in order - are:
- Patrick Connors
- John O'Grady
- Alyson Champ
- jacqui boyd
- Barbara Jackson
Just for the record - anybody who leaves a comment on the page which lists all the "who painted this?" rather than the specific blog post is not counted. You have been warned!
