Sciotot

A 19th-century oil painting on wood panel from the atelier of the Normandy painter Emile Tremblay (1855-1935). The piece is monogrammed in the lower right corner and features the atelier's stamp on the reverse. The work is also located on the back, in "L'anse de Sciotot", a Normandy bay in "La Manche" next to the English Channel. Like Siouville, Sciotot is known for its vast sandy beaches and wildly unpredictable weather, far from the hustle and bustle of major seaside resorts.

In this sweet small scale work, we see a winding path leading between the grassy hills and pilings. Knowing Sciotot, it is considered the "countryside by the sea," with farmhouses surrounded by tall grasses, just a few minutes walk from the ocean.

Emile Tremblay is an artist with no available biography online. However, through extensive research of old archives and letters, we have uncovered some context about his closest associates. Emile had a brother, Louis Tremblay, who was a published poet, author, and painter. Emile was also a dear friend of the famous Swedish artist, art critic, and museum manager Richard Bergh (1858-1919), to whom he inscribed a painting with the dedication, "To my brother Bergh." The remainder of what we know about Emile Tremblay comes solely from his exquisite atelier works.
