For 48+ years, the Aldrichimica Acta has been an open-access, international forum for the frontiers of chemical research. Topical and timely reviews, written by prominent chemists from around the world, cover a variety of topics usually based on a synthetic theme involving organic, organometallic, or bio-organic chemistry. It has been ranked number one by Impact Factor® (IF) among more than 50 international journals in the field of Organic Chemistry in eleven out of the past eleven years, with recent IF scores of 12.231 (2012), 16.333 (2013), and 17.083 (2014) (Thomson Reuters; Journal Citation Reports® 2012, 2013, and 2014 Science Editions).

Aldrichimica Acta 2016, Vol. 49, No. 1

John Singer Sargent (1856–1925)
En route pour la pêche, 1878

Painting Clues

En route pour la pêche and Fishing for Oysters at Cancale are almost the same painting: the same vantage point, beach, women and children in the foreground, and the same lighthouse and fishing port in the background. However, the work in the Museum of Fine Arts appears less refined and less complete, with missing elements such as the basket carried by the boy in the foreground and the additional townsfolk coming down the slipway in the background. Also, the fishing port area is not as sharply in focus, the sky less bright, and the composition darker overall. Can you identify additional discrepancies between the two compositions?
