John Russell is an Australian impressionist painter, a contemporary of Monet and Matisse.  Qld Art Gallery has a number of his works on display at the moment, including these two.

I first saw Russell’s ‘Belle Ile’ works in a travelling exhibit called ‘Belle Ile: Monet, Russell & Matisse in Brittany’ around 10 years ago and was impressed then – I still am.
