GOODWILL ART GUIDE — Painting the Environment
Perhaps bridges have a fascination for painters because they are the answer to one of humanities' oldest problems: crossing water that stands in the way.
Mediaeval pictures of bridges often show them covered with houses: a bridge was convenient to live on — garbage was just tossed into the water.
Paris in particular is famous for its bridges across the Seine — celebrated in music and poetry as well as art. The Impressionist Claude Monet fitted out a boat as a floating studio — the perfect vantage point for painting them.
Bridges are, of course, places where people go to ponder on life, and occasionally to jump off. The Norwegian Edvard Munch often placed tense-looking women on a bridge, the better to express his favourite themes — love and death.
