‘’Le torrent’’ by French painter Albert Gabriel Rigolot (1862 - 1932)
Through his strong color palette he brought riverscapes and landscape scenes to life. Similar to the Barbizon painters, Rigolot shared the same philosophy of portraying his works of art with a naturalistic approach, concentrating on the effects of light as it penetrated its rays through the trees onto the riverbanks.

Rigolot also mastered oriental scenes and was elected a member of the French Society of Orientalists. His works showed a poetic vision of sophistication which were trademarks of the Orientalists. In 1888 he became a member of the Societe des Artistes Francais. His paintings were exhibited a number of times at the Paris Salon. A few years later, he received the Medaille de Troisieme Classe in 1891, followed by the Medaille Deuxieme Classe in 1892, then the Medaille d’Argent in 1900 and lastly the Legion of Honour in 1901. He remained an important cultural figure in France during the 19th Century. When he died in 1932, he left behind a generous collection of his landscape and orientalist scene paintings.
