Charreton’s work often features impasto and seeks to capture the fleeting, momentary effects of weather or light. In ‘Over the Bridge’ we see the use of a pastel palette insinuating a warmer weather with this softer yet brighter light creating glistering sparkles of colour upon the river. The redish stone contrasts against the colour of the river on the other hand it is still able to complement this lighter palette by having the dark points of shadow under the bridge mostly made of brown and purple tones then deep black. This is able to keep the palette warm to create an atmosphere similar to a spring morning.

Born in Bourgoin-Jallieu, France, Charreton has come to be known as a 20th century Impressionist, continuing the legacy of those expressive en plein air paintings with his depictions of the countryside. Originally Victor Charreton studied to become a lawyer in Paris, and practised for many years before he turned to an artistic practise. He devoted himself entirely to painting in 1902. In the years that followed, Charreton would travel throughout France and across the North of Africa, producing numerous atmospheric winter scenes. He notably served as a professor at the Académie Julian in Paris from 1919 until 1925. The artist died on November 26, 1936 in Clermont-Ferrand, France.
Today, Charreton’s works are held in the collections of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and the Brooklyn Museum, among others.
