Moon Effect

$900.00

French brocante painting: French school oil on carton landscape painting, signed Victor Pierre Ménard (1857-1938). The back contains annotations and the title of the work; Effet de Lune (Moon Effect).

The surface of the work is smooth without excess material.

This impressionist landscape is bathed in a twilight sky with an explosive palette, which oscillates between silver grays and crimson shades, recalling certain versions of the Parliament of London by Claude Monet (1840-1926). A small format artwork that goes wonderfully with its golden carved frame.

About the artist: Victor Pierre Ménard (1857-1938) was born in Nantes in 1857. He trained at the Beaux-Arts in Paris with renowned professors such as Luc-Olivier Merson (1846-1920), Jules Joseph Lefebvre (1834-1912) and Henri-Lucien Doucet (1856-1895). He lived in Paris in the second district where he met and married Charlotte Morel, one of the first women to be admitted to mixed classes of the Beaux-Arts.

Victor Pierre Ménard regularly exhibited his Breton landscapes, portraits and genre scenes at the Salon of French artists from 1894, where he obtained a mention in 1923. He also exhibited at the Salon d'Hiver between 1923 and 1937. He died in Paris in 1938.
