Diélette

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. Diélette is a former Normandy fishing village. The port was built in the 18th century by the lords of Flamanville.

This painting shows a beach and shore along the rolling fields and landscape of the Normandy coast. The colors are vivid despite the painting being over 100 years old. The brushstrokes and texture emit the richness of the landscape. 

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.
