Description & Technical information

Impressionist Snow paintings are extremely popular and very collectible and the snowscapes painted by Loiseau are very sought-after as they are reminiscent of the greatest masterpieces of this genre painted by Monet, Sisley, and Pissarro. 

Gustave Loiseau grew up between Paris and Pontoise. Like many of the Impressionists, he favored the "plein air" approach of painting. Loiseau’s paintings have a naturalistic style using crosshatched brushstrokes to reveal light and shape to his landscapes.

This work is one of the best snow paintings we have seen by the artist. It has a beautiful texture and is very colourful for a snow painting. Works by Loiseau belong to esteemed collections such as those of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, or closer to us here in the UK the Fitzwilliam Museum at the University of Cambridge. Some of his paintings can fetch prices above half a million dollars and so this work offers good value.
