Alexandre Tharaud: Les barricades mystérieuses (Couperin)

She looks maybe a little confined by the role society expects of her?

At Sunnyside - Where Truth and Beauty Meet

GEORGE SPENCER WATSON, R.A., R.W.S., R.O.I. (BRITISH, 1869-1934), Dorothy, daughter of F.J. Elliott Esq., signed and dated ‘G Spencer Watson/ 1929’ (lower left) oil on canvas, 561⁄4 x 401⁄8 in. (142.9 x 102 cm.), Image Source: Christie’s

I wonder what the story is behind her expression….

Is she bored? forlorn? disinterested? hopeless?

Maybe some music will help.

Performed live in the Galerie des Glaces at the Château de Versailles in July 2020, Alexandre Tharaud plays Les Barricades Mystérieuses (The Mysterious Barricades) by baroque composer François Couperin. Filmed on 6 July 2020.

Thanks for Visiting 🙂
