Picturing a World

Marie-François Firmin-Girard

Blog post alert:> Thanks to a post at Line and Colors for introducing me to Marie-François Firmin-Girard. I love finding pictures that I might have used for Where the Light Falls had I come upon them in time.

For instance, Jeanette and Cousin Effie visit the Quai aux Fleurs, and this painting contains all sorts of details that might have sharpened a description. Look at the black-and-white plaids two women wear or the children, the dogs, the handcarts. I know I’d have been tempted to mention the blue tiles surrounding the clock on the bell tower or the wicker baskets for the plants. The interactions among people might also suggest an incident or a completely separate story. See anything of note?
