Henri Schäfer
Evreux, Normandy

About

Évreux is a commune in Haute-Normandie in northern France in the Eure department of which it is the capital. Évreux goes back to the 4th century and enjoys a rich history from the 11th century through the 17th century. It was heavily damaged during the Second World War, and most of its center has been rebuilt. The town has a bishop, and its cathedral is one of the largest and finest in France. Old Évreux is a little over three miles southeast of the town. Here can be seen the remains of a Roman theater, a palace, baths and an aqueduct. The bronze “Jupiter Stator” which was found at this site is deposited, along with other ancient relics in the Musée d’Évreux. This romantic bird’s eye view of Évreux and its cathedral and the quaint half-timbered homes and shops nearby not only is an accurate architectural document, but it shows Schäfer’s great sensitivity, both delicate and vigorous, as a colorist. His architectural paintings show a mastery of architectural detail and perspective. They provided frequent opportunities for him to show the rhythms of light and shade and the ongoing flow and fluctuations of sunlight, and Schäfer literally reveled in detail. Both his eye and hand share refinement and sensitivity as well as power and down-to-earthiness, and these qualities make his paintings exceptional. Schäfer combines the splendor of sacred architecture with the communal activities of everyday life, creating a picture which holds formal and meditative beauty and timeless charm.
