Landscape by the Shore (or The Picnic) is an alluring oil on canvas by Edward Henry Potthast. Unfortunately, the date of the original work is unknown, as are its whereabouts. Edward Henry Potthast was a 19th-century American Impressionist. He is now known for his breathtaking landscape paintings, especially for focusing on a fundamental Impressionist motif: beach scenes with characters engaged in leisure activities, such as playing, swimming, or making picnics, as it's the case in this incredible painting. Most of Potthast's work is done in the northern coastal region, especially in New York.
Landscape by the Shore (or the Picnic) was painted on a horizontal canvas. Potthast placed the horizon line very low, allowing the sky to be the composition's protagonist. In the forefront, there is a gesturally painted grass, accomplished with medium-sized fast brushstrokes that give an energetic quality to the painting. Most of the grass is done with colder, bluish greens on the right side. After a road divides this area in two, the green is warmer, with the painter adding yellow to capture the sun's reflection on the soil. For the tree's shadows, the artist employed dark greens. The shade comes from trees that are beyond the image's borders.
A road leads to a group of five people. Two of them are standing adjacent to each other. They are probably talking because of their poses. As usual in his works, Potthast prefers to simplify the human figure: it becomes more a compositional point than the landscape. It is also a striking way to show the trees' dimensions. On both sides of these characters, there are two groups of high trees. The trees have slim trunks painted dark brown, with deep green, orangish, and yellowish leaves. Potthast perfectly captures the joyful atmosphere of a sunny day on the coast. Beyond the group, there is a light blue sea with a sailing boat close to some mountains. The sky is a vast area and is mainly dominated by white clouds.
Born in Cincinnati in 1857, Edward Henry Potthast began his career after graduating from the McMicken School of Design. Potthast started to take painting classes with Thomas Satterwhite Noble. He completed his education in Europe, studying in the Académie Julien. The painter moved to New York in 1895, where he would have his commercial break and finance himself with his painting work since he had previously worked as a lithographer.
