Sunset, by Charles Signoret (1867-1932). Oil on wooden panel.


This painting, exhibited at the prestigious Georges Petit gallery in Paris, is ablaze with tonal contrasts reflecting a sunset over a vast expanse of sea. The luminous colors are painted on a wooden panel, a noble material that adds depth and transparency to the vibrant composition. The presence of a rowboat containing two fishermen gliding across the calm waters animates this serene seascape. Signed lower right. Framed French gold gilt frame.

Signoret’s paintings bridge the academic art of the XIXth century with the modernism of early XXth century work, creating a synergy between rigorous technique and intense emotional content. He exhibited his work at the Salon des Artistes Francais in 1898. 1900, 1914 and 1920, and won the Prix Ragnecourt-Guyon in 1910.
His dramatic maritime scenes and lush landscape depictions of his native France are richly chromatic and infused with a sense of romantic lyricism reminiscent of the Barbizon school. His bold application of pigment in a series of short, rapidly applied brushstrokes as well as his choice of intensely contrasting colors places him firmly in the school of Post Impressionism.
