Léonce Vaysse
Etude apres nature

About

True to the principles of the Barbizon School and his own love of forest interiors, trees and leaves, Vaÿsse shows his great sensitivity to nature in this idyllic French landscape. Vaÿsse believed that unadulterated beauty and universal truth were to be found in the French countryside, and, thus, landscape painting was the highest order among all artistic endeavors. Having grown up in a small town where he roamed the nearby forests, Vaÿsse later, as a painter, incorporated many remembrances of his youth in his work. One of these was his love of contrast - especially the contrast of dark vegetation against a light, yet overcast sky. Brilliant fluttering and shimmering light filters through the centrally grouped trees, striking the embankment where a solitary fisherman stands. Vaÿsse combines the colors and subject matter of the Barbizon School, but he also applies the lively and rapid strokes of color the Impressionists were fond of using, creating a splendid mix of pigment and texture. This in turn, creates the physical sensation of an atmosphere in the open, one of the best characteristics of Vaÿsse’s approach to landscape painting.
