The Dusk

$1,100.00

Vintage art from France: French school of the XIXth century oil on canvas painting signed Victor Pierre Ménard (1857-1938), marked with the stamp of his workshop lower right.

The surface of the canvas has thicknesses on the hills in the foreground, where the brushstroke becomes lighter over the rise. The palette is complex and is based on a deep study of the landscape and natural world, resulting in a realistic painting with magnificent depth.

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.
