About

A wonderful oil on canvas circa 1920 by French post impressionist painter Pierre Eugène Montezin depicting two gardeners tending to an orchard on a bright summer's day. Signed lower right. Dimensions: Framed: 30"x35" Unframed: 24"x29" Provenance: This work is recorded in the archives of the painter held by Cyril Klein-Montezin. Pierre Montézin's father, a lace designer, found him a job with a design company, where he soon devoted himself to murals. Strongly influenced by the theories of Impressionism, he later embarked on a career as an artist in his own right. In about 1903 he came into contact with Quost who made him work on his drawing and gave him a taste for painting. He enlisted in 1914 for the duration of the war, and took up painting again on his return. He lived in Dreux and Moret for a year, and spent his holidays there from then on. Montézin was made a Chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur in 1923 and in 1940 was elected a member of the Académie des Beaux-Arts, taking the place left vacant by Edouard Vuillard's death.
