Claude E. Picault (French, 19th/20th Century)

Barbizon Landscape with Pond

Oil on artist board, signed lower left

Painting: 15" x 22"
Frame: 26" x 33"

Little biographical information has been published on Picault. Judging by available images of his work, he was heavily influenced by the Barbizon artists such as Jacque, Diaz and Dupré who were painting in the Forest of Fontainbleau. This scene of a forest opening to a cloud filled blue sky is one Picault repeated again and again and is most likely a view in the forest of Fontainbleau.
