Why We Love It

This delightful pastel is a marvelous example of Breckenridge’s colorful impressionist style. Using an almost pointillist technique, he captures the lively energy of this garden scene with splashes of pink, blue, green, and white in an unusual composition, which verges on the edge of abstraction.

The Value

Works on paper are great opportunities to own artwork by notable artists at less expensive prices. This pastel demonstrates the wonderful impressionist style that Breckenridge was known for, but is more affordable than his oils. The work is in excellent condition and has a lovely period frame.
