    Hyppolyte DURAND-TAHIER

    First a notary, then a journalist,
    talented art writer and poet,
    he ended up devoting himself entirely to painting.

    Friend of Maufra, Gauguin, and Puvis de Chavannes who urged him to paint,
    he was just as close to Rodin, whose work he admired.
    It is present in the major Parisian salons,
    and very popular with amateurs.

    His painting is very inspired by the impressionists.
    * The impressionists
    like to highlight the fireplace,
    and the family unit,
    as simply as possible, without frills ...
    Moments captured fleetingly are thus offered to the eyes of the spectators.

    The feminine mystery of the home,
    the effects of materials, everyday objects and textiles,
    the play of shadows and lights linked to the presence of doors or windows,
    thus create
    a poetic idea of domesticity.

    The spectator witnesses the daily life of the characters who do not know that it exists:
    family harmony, figures of good children and virtuous women
    with delicate attitudes.

    All with some blurring in the line,
    games of reflections and reversals between interior and exterior.
