Nittis BBQ Breakfast

Ontbijt van de BBQ van Nittis - Lyklema Fine Art
Giuseppe de Nitti's breakfast-in-the-garden (1883)
Pinacoteca "Giuseppe De Nittis"

For Breakfast in the garden, Giuseppe de Nittis portrayed his wife and son. Breakfast in nature is one of the most common impressionistic scenes. Nittis captures the moment someone else probably left the table when you look at the chair in the foreground, already turned away and the napkin on the left. The scene is generously illuminated by the sun, reflected by the play of light and shadow from the trees in the meadow where the ducks and geese roam. We feel a summer day that has only just begun and will be filled indefinitely with the same peace that work radiates. Nittis shows the favorite impressionist principle of transience with the moment when the duck approaches. Nittis probably witnessed the scene live, as impressionists often worked en plein air. That's why we also bring this dish outside and make breakfast on the BBQ.
