Gustave Loiseau was a French painter best known for his Post-Impressionist landscapes utilizing crosshatched strokes to describe light and forms. His work is more similar to the first generation of Impressionists, such as Claude Monet and Alfred Sisley, in its focus on changing weather and seasons.
His canvases reveal an interest in depicting the effects of rain, frost, fog, morning mist and overcast skies with the clouds filtering the rays of sun. In order to create a more melancholy landscape he always avoided the intense and vibrant light found in the work of the Impressionists.
