Sunset, by Georges Huet (1860-1935). Oil on Canvas dated 1896.

This radiant depiction of silhouetted trees outlined against a setting sun is serene and majestic in its rendition . A close up view of the foliage reveals the delicate details of the leaves, and the luminous colors of the sky serve to contrast the fading sky against the darkening trees. The work is painted on a wooden panel, which adds depth and luminosity to the composition. Signed and dated lower right. Framed in original XIXth century French carved and gold gilt frame.

"Huet was classically trained as an artist, and started to exhibit his paintings at the Salon des Artistes Francais in Paris in 1885. He was named as Curator at the Musee d'Orleans, whose collection of paintings he studied assiduously and copied.
Huet's work is anchored in XIXth century French painting in his usage of a classical palette of colors and his realistic depictions and use of traditional perspective. His close attention to detail in his landscapes is reminiscent of the Barbizon painters; yet his rendition of the atmospheric effects of light on color and form reveals the strong impact that the Impressionists and Post Impressionists had on his work."
