The Cold Day

Description Conservation Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Frère specialized in sentimental scenes of childhood. Thanks to the complimentary reviews of the English critic John Ruskin and the promotional efforts of his dealer Ernest Gambart, he enjoyed phenomenal international success during the mid 19th century. He established an artists' colony in Ecouen, a village located 8 miles north of Paris, that attracted both French and foreign visitors, including the American Mary Cassatt and the Anglo-American George H. Boughton.
