This impressionist painting by Henri Laigneau beautifully captures a peaceful farm landscape at sunset. Created with oil on canvas, it bears the artist's signature and date of completion in 1912. A stunning and timeless addition to any art collection.

Henri Édouard Laigneau was a French artist born in Rambouillet (Yvelines) on 24 August 1863. He trained in Paris at the Académie Colarossi, which was a ‘free studio’, and took anatomy classes at the École des Beaux-Arts.

He exhibited at the official Salon from 1899, but also very quickly at the more avant-garde Salon of the Société Nationale des Beaux-arts, and at the Salon des Indépendants from 1910. Very interested in luminous contrasts, the artist mainly painted landscapes and portraits. 

Henri Laigneau inherited a strong Pointillist influence in the style of Pissarro. The viewer is struck by his interest in light and bright colours. This aspect of his work could also be related to the painter Bonnard, a former ‘nabi’. The artist's professionalism is evident in his sense of composition, rigorous drawing and colour construction. Several of his works are kept in public collections, in Niort, Rambouillet and Nancy among others.

Henri Laigneau was very attached to his region, and remained a Rambouillet until his death on 29 January 1947.
