Small river landscape study. It is produced with a light touch that harmoniously blends a range of greens. The vibration of the light, the reflections of the vegetation on the water and the treatment of the foliage are all reminiscent of Impressionism.

Pierre-Paul Detenre was born on April 5, 1841 in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris. Eldest son of a wealthy merchant, co-owner between 1833 and 1843 of the famous novelty store “La maison du Pauvre Diable”, rue Montesquieu, he was orphaned at the age of three. He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts and was a pupil of Alexandre Cabanel and Félix-Joseph Barrias. He exhibited at the Salon between 1880 and 1896. Essentially a landscape painter, he also produced a number of portraits.

Pierre-Paul Detenre died on August 10, 1926 in Crosne (Seine-et-Oise), and was buried in the family vault in the Parisian cemetery of Montparnasse.
