This 19th-century oil painting on wood panel is from the atelier of Normandy painter Emile Tremblay (1855-1935). The piece is monogrammed in the lower left corner and features the atelier's stamp on the reverse.

This medium-sized, long horizontal painting depicts a seashore and bay at low tide. The ocean waves are visible, along with the long stretch of the tide across the sands. The foreground features foliage and rocky outcroppings, while the sky is a pearly blue.

Due to its unique dimensions, this painting would be excellent for a landscape wall or above furniture or a windowsill.

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.
