• The artist’s most famous works are landscapes and experimentations with the effects of light, mainly of Parisian scenes. In 1870 he worked alongside Camille Pissarro in Pontoise, as well as with Cézanne at Auvers. Guillaumin experimented with strong structural compositions and shimmering light, and Pissarro encouraged him to exhibit three canvases at the first Impressionist exhibition. Throughout his time with Pissarro, Guillaumin was to develop his art of landscape painting, with perspectives opened by winding paths, while, like here, also sometimes introducing in his setting industry themes reminiscent of a certain romanticism.

  • Gustave Loiseau was a French Post-Impressionist painter, known for his landscape paintings and Parisian Street scenes. He was a great traveller, painting throughout France but was drawn primarily to the Normandy coast, including the locations Dieppe, Fécamp, and Étretat. The elemental beauty of this vibrant cityscape is created with several components of Loiseau’s signature style. The blend of foliage and the coursing river shows the predominance of the inhabitants of the French Brittany Coast for structuring their cities around the local waterways. At this coastal harbour entrance to the important port of Fécamp, halfway between Dieppe and Le Havre. Dimensions: (unframed) 46.3 x 55.1 cm/ 18.2 x 21.7 ins Signature: Signed 'G.

  • This beautiful work transports the beholder to a fantastical winter landscape, showing figures interacting with the coldness each in their own way. Some are fishing, others are gathering wood, riding a sleigh or leading a wagon through the snow. The church in the background fits perfectly in the serene atmosphere.

  • Haystacks, 1907

    by Armand Guillaumin

    Noted for their intense colours, Guillaumin's paintings are represented in major museums around the world. He is best remembered for his landscapes of Paris, the Creuse département, and the area around Les Adrets-de-l'Estérel near the Mediterranean coast in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region of France. Guillaumin was called the leader of the École de Crozant, a diverse group of painters who came to depict the landscape in the region of the Creuse around the village of Crozant. One of these depictions, titled Landscape in Crozant, is housed in the Art Institute of Chicago. His bust is in the square near the village church.
