About

French school circa 1840 A peasant with a carriage watercolor with heightenings of gouache on paper Signed lower left D Danes ... (?) 19 x 11.5 cm Framed 27 x 34 cm The attribution to a known artist of the time is still to find but the quality of this watercolor is evident. The interest of the romantic and realist artists for the daily countryside life was strong as they did want to reinvent art away from ancient history and religious subjects. Also more and more people lived in the cities away from this life they tend to idealise it as in the novels of George Sand for example and later in Maupassant's ones. The artist has made of a very simple scene a fully animated composition with the horses interacting with the young guy and with the dog. The typical costume worn by the young peasant is a good indication the scene takes place in Normandy.
