Description & Technical information

Le Sidaner was interested in, and influenced by, the colour theories and
pointillism of Neo-Impressionism that the 1900s brought with it.  More specifically, the style of Eugene Carrière (which is characterised by indeterminate colours and a taste for a certain
misty atmosphere) was admired by Le Sidaner. The focus for both Sidaner and
Carrière was on light and how it could be shown on canvas to give objects a
three dimensional effect as well as a sensation of calm and of atmosphere.
