Antique original oil painting: French School of the 19th-century oil on canvas mounted on wood attributed to Auguste Allongé (1833-1898). Stamps of the succession visible on the back. The canvas is smooth.

A large stormy landscape with a pearl gray and clay sky, and a very beautiful study of nuances. The brushstrokes emanate emotion without being marked. The light is bright without being imposing and shows perfectly the details of the elements until the end of the hill.

About the artist: Allongé was born in Paris in 1833 and entered the Imperial School of Fine Arts at the age of 20. Close to the Barbizon School, and always looking for the right light, he moved to a luminous countryside area, more precisely in Bourron Marmotte (near Paris) and became a member of the prestigious Marlotte Group. The Marlotte group included painters like Claude Monet, Alfred Sisley, Alexandre-Gabriel Decamps, Narcisse Díaz de la Peña, Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne. All came to be inspired by its surrounding forest landscapes.

In addition to his oil landscapes, Allongé was passionate about charcoal drawing and was considered one of the masters of charcoal by critics and his peers. In 1873 he published a treatise on the technique of charcoal drawing translated into several languages. Many of his works on oil and charcoal are in museums all around France.
