Artful Wednesday: Philip Wilson Steer

Like Dorothea Sharp, Steer is another British Impressionist, taking some inspiration from the popular French school.  What I find interesting is that he also drew inspiration from the British landscape artists like Constable (my personal fave).  I love the painting below, titled "Hydrangea."  There is such a sweet softness in his approach to the portrait.
