Hide-and-Seek

:

Morisot, who had earlier commented on how successfully Bazille had merged sunlit figure and landscape in his View of the Village, pushed that fusion even further here. Choosing again the mother-and-child theme that was so often considered appropriate in the nineteenth century to the repertory of women painters, Morisot virtually camouflages the mother, daughter, and parasol in what then seemed a recklessly incompetent tangle of few and ragged brushstrokes that make it impossible to sort out grass from dress, hat from distant houses, hiding child from the tree that hides her.
