20th-century French School oil on wood panel depicting Redon, Brittany (written on the back) and attributed to Hélène Lacouloumère (1873-1960). The panel has a bit of texture in the foreground.
A high-angle landscape with a vast sky overlooking a coastal town. The light is bright and gradually unfolds from the top of the hill. The juxtaposition of the brushstrokes gives a compact effect to the city but the colors of the roofs create a coherent and realistic whole. The Church stands out from its height and its verticality which clashes with the horizontal lines, leaving dissipates with accuracy. A sense of fullness emanates from the expansive view.
