Painting : October Saison D'Octobre (1878) by Jules Bastien-Lepage (French), oil on canvas 180.7 x 196 cm •  Location : NGV, Melbourne • Time : 8 minutes • Medium : Colour pencil on sketch book

Notes : Painted at the artist's native village of Damvillers in the Meuse Valley (northeast of Paris), October represents the annual potato harvest in a bleak autumnal landscape. Inspired by the examples of Jean-François Millet and Gustave Courbet, Jules Bastien-Lepage set out to paint rural life as he knew it, not only celebrating the dignity of the peasants but also depicting their hardships. Now considered a realist, Jean Bastien-Lepage despised city painters who sentimentalised country life. Like CamilleCorot, he combined elements of plein-air Impressionism with a controlled approach to technical finish, thus rendering the subject palatable to Salon audiences. A huge popular success, he was awarded the Légion d'Honneur as result.

Painting : An Interesting Story by James Tissot, 1872, Oil on Wood Panel •  Location : NGV, Melbourne • Time : 20 minutes • Medium : Colour pencil on sketch book

Notes : The title of this painting describes a comedy of manners, as James Tissot portrays two fashionably dressed women ignoring a soldier (whose uniform is by contrast conservative and outmoded) who is engrossed in his own telling of a tale. This work, exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1872, was one of the first paintings Tissot showed in London after he left France at the fall of the Paris Commune in 1871.

Painting : The Temptation of Christ, Ary Scheffer, 1854 • Location : NGV, Melbourne • Time : 10 minutes • Medium : colour pencil on sketch book

Notes : The forty days of Lent is the annual retreat of the people of God in imitation of Jesus' forty days in the wilderness. Towards the end of his career, Ary Scheffer achieved great success with paintings based on Christian themes. While many of there works were life-size, Scheffer also made a number of smaller copies of his compositions.
