‘’A Bull in a Landscape’’ by Jacques-Raymond Brascassat (French, 1804–1867)
There is another ‘’Taureau et autres animaux dans une prairie’’ on display in the Fine Arts Museum of Nantes's collection (accession number 840)
Jacques-Raymong Brascassat (1804-1867) first trained with the landscape painter Théodore Richard (1782-1859) in Bordeaux. He then studied under Louis Hersent (1777-1860) at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and went to Rome where he befriended Théodore-Caruelle d'Aligny (1798-1871), with whom he improved his study of nature. He later joined him in Barbizon upon his return to France.
This painting is a fine example of Brascassat landscape paintings often enlivened with animals such as goats, sheep or bulls. His work was influenced by the Dutch animal painters of the 17th century who extensively portrayed animals in sunny landscape. This painting shows Brascassat skills as an animal painter and his complete understanding of the bull's anatomy.
