Along the Banks of the Seine, by Paul Thomas (1868-1910). Oil on Canvas.

The artist chose a harmonious palette of luminous pigments that were applied in short, diagonal brushstrokes, thus creating a highly dynamic pictorial surface. The sunlight’s reflection of the distant village in the tranquil waters adds lyricism and transparency to this bucolic scene of life along the Seine. Signed lower left. Framed in antique style French burnished gold gilt, carved wooden frame.

Commentary

"After studying at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in Limoges, he went to Paris where he studied architecture and eventually found his way into the painting atelier of Jean Leon Gerome. He was commissioned to decorate the famous Paris ‘Café Procope’, and closely studied the work of Van Gogh, whose bold and vivid brushstrokes he would integrate into his own style of painting.
Thomas’ palette of luminous colors were applied in a series of short, diagonal strokes that created a rhythmic energy in his work as well as a highly dynamic pictorial surface. He preferred the harmonious tonalities of the Impressionists to the bold intensity of the Post Impressionists, and drew his inspiration from the lush countryside that bordered the Seine as well as Paris’ animated street life.
Thomas died brusquely at the age of forty-two, having gone completely mad.
