French Naturalist Painters
1890-1950Book - 2012
A spotlight on French landscape painters of the early twentieth century. Most of the painters collected here have remained uncelebrated for far too long. This catalogue aims to repair this oversight, as well as to reignite the study of this generation of French painters who concentrated primarily on the traditional genre of landscape and still life. The eighty works of art, mainly painted between the wars, are at the crossroads of the many influences of this creative period, where tradition and the avant-garde blended together without restraint. This panorama of Douce France signals the last breath for this pictorial style, which was the inheritor and continuation of the Impressionist movement--a status that was bound to be lost forever after the Second World War.
