This beautiful painting depicts a tranquil garden, flora spilling out of every corner. In Le Jardin Siliencieux Pinchon has captured the intense colouration of the vegetation, the vibrant pinks, vivid reds and bold greens permeating the canvas.

Robert Pinchon had taken part in the 1905 Salon d’Automne which saw the birth of Fauvism. This movement was characterised by its bold, non-naturalistic colouration and wild loose dabs of paint. The art critic Louis Vauxcelles coined the phrase ‘les fauves’ (‘the wild beasts’) to describe a circle of painters exhibiting in the same room as a classical sculpture. He stated his criticism of their works by describing the sculpture as “a Donatello amongst wild beasts” (Donatello chez les fauves). Despite not being in the same room as those artists Pinchon was much influenced by the Fauves and acquired their vivid palette. His style remained Post-impressionist with its thick impasto and broad brushstrokes but with the incandescent colours of the Fauves. This work is from after that period and is seen here where golden yellows recreate the heat of the bright sunlight.
