French school, mid-19th century
Oil on canvas
45 x 37.5 cm (58 x 51 cm with the frame)
This is a pretty painting, a fisherman sitting near a waterfall in a wild and picturesque landscape.
The composition is harmonious, with a limited range of colors, and the concern for realism is remarkable in the rendering of materials, rocks in particular. The little character is charming with his little ribbon hat and his fish basket. The charm of these last details and the beautiful light that bathes the entire composition also recall the art of Jules Coignet between classic landscape, idealized and realistic landscape. But we are leaning towards a later artist among the painters of Barbizon, in the years 1850/1860. A painting by Théodore Rousseau and dated around 1849 is similar in its style and entitled "the little fisherman" (Louvre museum). Perhaps Jules Dupré, in particular because of the particular touch made of hatching and the very thorough rendering of the material which is also reminiscent of the art of his friend Gustave Courbet.
The very classic composition, perhaps inspired by 17th century Dutch art, also evokes the art of Constant Troyon who was inspired by it.
