by Ferdinand Puigaudeau

Out Of Stock

Ferdinand du Puigaudeau was a French Impressionist painter known for his colourful depictions of country fairs, fireworks, and sunsets. Merging elements of Symbolism and Neo-Impressionism with traditional Impressionism, Du Puidgaudeau’s paintings contributed a unique aesthetic voice to the movement. Born on April 4, 1864 in Nantes, France, he was largely self-taught before arriving at the famous artist colony of Pont-Aven in 1886, where he met Paul Gauguin. Through the dealer Paul Durand-Ruel, one of Du Puigaudeau’s paintings was purchased by Edgar Degas, who would become one of his closest friends. During the early 1900s, the artist travelled to Venice where he produced a number of important canvases depicting the iconic sights of the city.

Ferdinand Puigaudeau was a talented draughtsman from childhood and his interest in painting continued, however, rather than enrol in one of the academies, Puigaudeau was largely self-taught, studying old masters and the work of his contemporaries.

Ferdinand du Puigaudeau was best known for his own very distinctive style of painting which emphasized the play of light in moonlit scenes that often involved fireworks, Breton carnivals, and coastal views as well as sunrises and sunsets.

While influenced by many artists with whom he lived and painted, Puigaudeu’s work is distinctive. He attempts to convey both the symbolism as well as the poetry of nature with harmonious colours that seem almost ethereal at times.

Puigeaudeu often painted the same scene at different times of the day to explore the play of light in much the same way as Claude Monet experimented with the effect of light.

Ferdinand Loyen du Puigaudeau was born in 1864 in Nantes, a city in western France along the Loire River. He received art training at a young age and travelled extensively to Rome, Flanders, and Venice. When he finally returned to France in 1888, he settled in Pont-Aven and resided at the Pension Goanec, an inexpensive hostel where he met Paul Gauguin, Emile Bernard, and Charles Laval.

Puigaudeau was also greatly influenced by the work of Claude Monet and Paul Renoir. The artists from Europe as well as the Americas who travelled to Brittany to paint were attracted to the region by its religious traditions, its mythical practices and culture. This École de Pont Aven gave birth to a new style of painting which was characterized by an emphasis on the vividness of colour, spatial arrangements that were greatly simplified, and by forms that were sharply delineated.
