Pondside landscapes with church and farm
A trip to the heart of the French countryside, in an impressionist spirit. Great softness of colors.
Small lack on one of two tables.
For memory :
Among the most representative Rouen painters of what is commonly called the School of Rouen is Léon-Jules Lemaître (1850-1905). A talented student at the drawing school in his city, he received a scholarship that allowed him to continue his career in the capital. Between 1873 and 1879, he attended the first Impressionist exhibitions, which inspired him more than the lessons of his master, the intransigent Gérôme. A link with Parisian circles, he converted his friends who remained in Rouen, Charles Angrand, Charles Frêchon, Joseph Delattre to Impressionism, then to Neo-Impressionism. Together, they form « the four musketeers » of the School of Rouen. He continued this adventure until 1890, before specializing in views of Rouen, which ensured him real success with amateurs of the time, confirmed by subsequent generations.
