20th Century French School oil on canvas, signed by Jacques Gautherin (1929-1997) and dated 1949. Located in Presles, north of Paris, this textured artwork captures a view of the town using a multitude of circular and comma-shaped brushstrokes. The vivid colors and abundant movement create a lively atmosphere, while the gilded frame complements the contemplative and poetic scene. The work is special in its mix of Impressionism and Pointillism.
About the artist: Jacques Gautherin was a French painter born in 1929 and passed away in 1997. He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and developed a unique poetic style that blended Impressionism and Pointillism. Gautherin exhibited his works in numerous galleries and fairs across France and internationally.
Gautherin mixed Impressionism and Pointillism because both movements shared some fundamental principles and combining the techniques allowed them to further explore and innovate in their art. Both Impressionism and Pointillism focused on capturing the fleeting effects of light, color, and atmosphere in their paintings. The combination of the two styles allowed artists to create even more dynamic and luminous scenes, as well as experiment with new techniques and approaches.
