Description & Technical information

Armand Guillaumin discovered the Creuse in 1892, three years after Monet
himself stayed there. Guillaumin settled in Crozant from 1893 to 1924,
where he painted every day, regardless of the season, in an
impressionist manner. The collectors particularly appreciate his winter
landscapes, the Gelées blanches (or "white frosts"), which made him
triumph at the large exhibition that Durand-Ruel dedicated to him in
1894, which gathered no less than 100 canvases and pastels. In his snowy
landscapes, Guillaumin reaches a rare vibration of colours and a vivid
intensity. The application of the impressionist theories is used at its
maximum extent, paired with the matter's profoundness, typical of the
artist's work.
