Fair Critics, detail (1887). Charles Courtney Curran (American, 1861–1942). Oil on canvas.
Curran’s use of color at this point is based on pairing analogous colors like yellow and green, restraining light effects in favor of volumetric plasticity. Curran works within the sound, traditional oil painting practice of building fat over lean, contrasting tonalities via glazes and impastos integrated within a smooth, modulated surface.
