Young women and children by Charles Courtney Curran

Early American Impressionist Charles Courtney Curran was memorable both for his elegant interior and exterior portraits of women and children, as well as for his leadership role at the Cragsmoor Art Colony.

Often compared to fellow American Impressionists Mary Cassatt, Frank Benson, and Edmund Charles Tarbell, Curran’s iconic paintings featuring graceful young women in flowing dresses set against the vast expanse of nature captivated art critics and the public, as well as his contemporaries. Curran’s impressionistic techniques utilizing loose brushstrokes and a vivid palette combined with his nostalgic subject matter encapsulate the leisurely summer beauty of Cragsmoor.

Grass more beautiful than flowers

We’ve seen too many beautiful flowers. Let’s see the grass.Though overlooked in favor of traditional turf and flowering plants, ornamental grasses can add beauty, movement, and textural interest to any yard. They’re available in a vast array of greens, golds, reds, and even blues to liven up flowerbeds, borders, and containers, and are suitable for a wide range of growing zones.

Maybe they will give you some ideas to decorate the courtyard.
