Description & Technical information

As one modern scholar has noted of de Boissieu’s landscape drawings, ‘The picturesque elements and luminous atmosphere may have been inspired by some of the “Italianate” Dutch painters who passed through Lyon, but Boissieu’s essentially grisaille technique and his devotion to the Lyonnaise landscape are entirely personal.’
