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

A small horizontal painting with dynamic colors and vigorous movement. As this piece was painted on untreated wood, there are a few burls in the wood itself which show through on the surface of the painting, as raised sections. They blend in and add to the texture of the piece.

This landscape appears to be a lagoon, surround by colorful foliage and rock outcroppings, with the sea under a purple and blue sky in the distance. 

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.
