Clemence in the Garden
About this artwork
In this piece, artist John Kelly once again paints one of his favorite muses, the dancer ClŽmence Bodin, done at the Jardin de Luxembourg in Paris. The loose brushwork of the background sketches a brilliant background of green and yellow, framing the figure in soft sunlight. Her dancer's pose suggests the moment just before movement, evoking spring, light, and color, says John.
