Leon Richet
At the pond

About

This delicately scaled landscape illustrates Richet’s unswerving devotion to nature. Ever faithful to the aesthetic canons of the Barbizon School, Richet has recreated the unadorned scene of a clearing with a peasant woman standing near a pond and a picturesque French “chaumière” or thatched cottage standing before the village cathedral. The light is natural and warm, the colors lush and pure. Richet refined the “plein air” technique of capturing the atmosphere of the scene in “situ,” only perfecting the compositional balance and harmony of the landscape within the confines of his studio. The result is a purely illuminated landscape that is naturally framed by the organic elements of the location.
