Description & Technical information

Charles Guilloux’s works on paper are characterized by the same atmospheric effects and somewhat elegiac quality of his paintings, as well as a confident handling of pencil, watercolour and pastel, sometimes using all three at once, as in the present sheet. Dated 1893, at the beginning of the artist’s independent career, this fine autumn landscape evinces an air of mystery and melancholy that is a recurring feature of Guilloux’s distinctive oeuvre.
