Eugene Cadell
Les Bergers

About

“Les Bergers,” or “The Shepherds,” is an exceptional example of Eugene Cadel’s unique stylistic approach to a lyrical subject matter. The picture depicts a shepherd who pauses to exchange words with a peasant woman who is gathering what appears to be a bundle of grasses or grain. To the left of the couple, a flock of sheep quietly grazes alongside a medieval structure. The artist here has sought to capture a mood rather than impart any particular message, thus, the subject matter is secondary to the overall impact of the work. Nonetheless, the setting and insinuated narrative are beautifully enhanced by the striking color scheme. The late afternoon sun sets as it casts gossamer clouds within a brilliant pink light which is featured against a bright cerulean sky. Curiously, the artist has set the remainder of the scene in shadow and, as such, has concentrated on rendering the setting in dune, navy, deep greens and brown hues. To harmonize this disparate color juxtaposition, the artist introduced pink blossoms into the spindly foreground trees, and shades of lavender which color the puddle of water within the left foreground. A loose and impressionistic brushstroke defines Cadel’s painting technique. He employs a variety of stippling and dabbling motions which impart a soft texture to the damp grass, and a cool roughness to the stone of the building. The composition centers upon the strong diagonal wedge created by the structures on the right, creating a superb recessional effect. The idyllic painting is quite tranquil, yet provocative. One may faintly recall the static pictures of Puvis de Chavannes, the artist’s teacher, considering the wondrous mood evoked by “Les Bergers.” Cadel’s works include “Paysage à l’arbre,” “La Durdent à Cany,” and “Parc fleuri.” His “Après la Revue” is illustrated in Gerald Schurr’s Les Petits Maitres de la Peinture Valeur de Demain.
