About

Oil on panel circa 1880 by Jean-Baptiste-Antoine Guillemet depicting a lady walking past cottages near the coast in Normandy. Signed lower left. Framed dimensions are 16 inches high by 20.5 inches wide. Little is known of Antoine Guillemet's childhood except that he was from an established family which allowed him the chance to develop his distinctive style without commercial constraints. Friends with Manet, Berthe Morisot, Cezanne, Monet and Pissarro, he had strong links with the Impressionists, though the influence of artists such as Corot, Oudinot and in particular Daubigny are visible in his work. He once confided to Pissarro that "after Corot, Daubigny, Jongkind, there is nothing left to do". Guillemet was a pupil of Corot and Oudinot. He made his Salon debut in 1865. His work, which reflects his masters' teachings, earned him numerous awards and distinctions: a jury commendation at the Salon of 1872, second-class medal in 1874 and 1876, and a silver medal at the Exposition Universelle of 1889. He was made a Chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur in 1880, an Officier in 1896, and a Commander in 1910. He won a medal in Munich in 1905. His work was nonethless criticised by Manet, who found fault with his excessively heavy and vigorous approach. As a member of the Impressionist group, it was Guillemet (together with Duranty) who introduced Manet to Emile Zola. Perhaps surprisingly, it was also Guillemet - a highly bourgeois figure - who succeeded in getting a painting by Cézanne accepted for the Salon of 1882. The catalogue reads: Cézanne, pupil of Guillemet (Cézanne, élève de Guillemet).
