Who Is Gustave Loiseau?
Loiseau and the Coasts of Normandy
Born in Paris in 1865, Gustave Loiseau, like many of the Impressionist painters, found inspiration in the coast of Normandy. In Falaises de Saint-Jouin, Loiseau eliminates almost every sign of human presence, choosing instead to focus on nature itself. The composition is anchored by the dramatic cliffs on the right, and framed by a wide expanse of sea and sky.Sotheby’s
Gustave Loiseau: Post-Impressionist
After a period of experimentation with Pointillism, Loiseau found his own vision of rural France. His canvases reveal an interest in creating a more melancholic vision, avoiding the intense light found in the work of the Impressionists. A renewed aesthetic sense characterized the stylistic path for expression, portraying the world not just according to its physical appearance, but by its inner realities. Loiseau looked at nature with extraordinary sensitivity, defining structure and form with short brushstrokes of broken color, which places him firmly within the Post-Impressionism movement.Bailly Gallery, Paris
