The term ‘Impressionist’ was initially a criticism that became an accurate description for the unique attraction of the Impressionist group of artist’s work. It was precisely the artist’s personal, visual impression of contemporary France that they sought to communicate; they wanted to express the reality of modern life, within the contemporary landscape.

The work was exhibited at the Musée Carnavalet in Paris in 1961, part of an exhibition on the changing views of Paris. Alternatively called ‘Le Marché aux Pommes’ (The Apple Market), it provides a snapshot into the daily working life of ordinary Parisians. Painted in 1904, the work hints toward the distinctive Fauve style the artist would soon adopt and his masterful use of line and colour are displayed here in full force. As recounted by Bryan Robertson: “Dufy’s characteristic use of a compact, tersely eloquent calligraphy and pure, clean, unfussed, fast-flowing line is perhaps the most radical extension in the first half of the twentieth century of Van Gogh’s passionately forceful and explosive handling of line and color in his own later paintings, and particularly in the drawings made with a reed pen” (quoted in Raoul Dufy (exhibition catalogue), Hayward Gallery, London, 1983, p. 18). Two preliminary sketches both titled “Le Marché aux Pommes Quai de l’Hôtel-de-Ville”   have been catalogued in Pierre Courthion’s book Raoul Dufy of 1951, ref. 14. & 15  p.XVII. This shows Dufy’s fascination with this particular subject; his interest lies with the light falling not on Paris’s famed Hotel-de-Ville which we see in the background but instead it illuminates the humble Parisians in the foreground.
  • Au Bord de la Seine

    by Jean Dufy

    £32,000
    Dufy often depicted people enjoying themselves in a bright colourful manner and he became best-known for his panoramic views of modern Paris, capturing the architecture, activities and electricity of the city. The Place de la Concorde was one of the artist’s favourite subjects, appearing in dozens of canvases he created from the 1930s through the 1950s. Here, Dufy has depicted the quay running right by the square using his signature stylized figures capturing its energy while focusing on such national symbols as the Palais Bourbon and the Pont Alexandre III.

    by Jeanne Selmersheim-Desgrange

    £19,500
    Selmersheim-Desgrange lived and loved the area around St. Tropez –  and she replicated the relaxed atmosphere, the intense light, the brilliant earthen colors, dark tree silhouettes, and azure seas in her work as can be seen in this composition. Signac and Selmersheim-Desgrange lived in a small house in the South of France – “La Hune” and throughout her association with Signac, Jeanne was happy and most contented to stay in the shadows of “her great master.” DIMENSIONS: (unframed) 50.3 x 65.5 cm/19.8 x 25.8 ins SIGNATURE: Titled and dated 'St-Raphaël 1908' (lower right) MEDIUM: Oil on canvas
  • La Maison Bleue aux Environs de Giverny

    by Blanche Hoschede-Monet

    £68,000
    Most of Blanche's works were done in Giverny (where the family home was based) from 1883 to 1897. Here she painted alongside Claude Monet and became Monet's assistant and pupil, often carrying his easel and his canvases on a wheel barrow. Monet enquired in 1884, when Blanche was 19, "Has Blanche been painting, and has she been making progress?" She painted landscapes with trees such as pines and poplars, and meadows along the Risle river. In the 1920s, she also painted on several occasions at Georges Clemenceau's property in Saint-Vincent-sur-Jard (Vendée department) in the west of France - paintings of the garden, house and the Atlantic Ocean. After Monet's death, she remained in Giverny and continued painting. DIMENSIONS: (unframed)54.1 x 81.5 cm/21.3 x 32.1 ins SIGNATURE: Signed lower left MEDIUM: Oil on canvas
