Canoeing is a captivating oil on canvas by the American Impressionist Edward Henry Potthast. Potthast was a 19th-century painter born in Connecticut. His work is now in some of the USA’s most prestigious art institutions, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Academy of Fine Arts in New York, and the Cincinnati Art Museum. As a lithographer, Potthast began his painting studies under a local painter and later made two trips to Europe, where he was part of the Académie Julien in Paris. The American Impressionists adopted the formal innovations of French Impressionism and, in doing so, created some of the most stunning North American landscapes.
Edward Henry Potthast was known for his sunny beach scenes, and Canoeing follows his aesthetic approach to the theme. Studying in France, Potthast was surprised by what artists such as Claude Monet, Renoir, and Paul Cézanne were proposing. Fastly enough, Potthast developed his take on Impressionism, one that would be used to depict the northern coast of the US, focusing on the region of Connecticut and New York. Potthast’s painting manner is very vigorous, fast, and energetic. Its use of a lot of oil paint and quick strokes create complex and fascinating surfaces in his pictures, which can effectively give the sense of touch and texture.
Canoeing is a rectangle-shaped canvas that almost has a square format, a dimension of a medium that Potthast often favors. The vibrant presence of primary colors is another aesthetic choice found among many of Potthast’s compelling beach scenes. In the painting’s foreground, there is a light greyish-yellow land full of rocks done with fast strokes. There are four boats on land, one yellow, two green, and one red. Two women are talking close to the sea in similar bathing suits.
A big white sail is behind one of the women, drawing the viewer’s eye. Close to this sail, a man is looking to the sea. Beyond the sail, there is also a rock formation, an element constantly present in Potthast’s pictures and which he paints perfectly. The sea’s water is very bright, and there’s another sail on the right side of the painting. Beyond, on the horizon, a strip forms a green line of trees and then a softly clouded sky.
