Léon Augustin Lhermitte
La Fenaison

Price Upon Request

About

Unframed dimensions specified. Signed 'L Lhermitte' (lower right) This pastel landscape scene depicts a gorgeous vista with two labourers harvesting the grass for hay - as the title 'Fenaison' references - in the foreground. L'Hermitte’s innovative use of pastels won him the admiration of his contemporaries, as well as being a skilled oil painter. Pastels as a medium were taken up by the Impressionists in the second half of the nineteenth Century for their immediacy and primacy of colour. Vincent van Gogh wrote that "If every month Le Monde Illustré published one of his compositions ... it would be a great pleasure for me to be able to follow it. It is certain that for years I have not seen anything as beautiful as this scene by L'Hermitte ... I am too preoccupied by L'Hermitte this evening to be able to talk of other things." Provenance: Private collection, United Kingdom
