moreThis work is clearly inspired by the Barbizon school, the early influences of Impressionism finding a home in the complex hues of blurred pigments that bring an entire village to life. It is signed lower right “Perret” and bears a placard noting it to be the work of Aimé Perret, but we are almost certain the work is misattributed to Aimé Perret. It is much more likely the work is by Henri François Perret (French, fl. 1847-1870) who studied under Charles Daubigny of the Barbizon School and painted extensively in this form, but most of his works are signed H. Perret. As such we have left the work unattributed, despite it’s clearly exceptional handling of the subject matter with a degree of complexity in the shadows, clouds, figures and pigment mixtures that is deeply accomplished. The work is vivid and remains in very fine presentation-ready condition, having been conserved in the last decade or so and strengthened with a new lining. The frame is early and the work would certainly benefit from having a more attractive frame that did not distract from the scene. It is an absolutely gorgeous work, striking in every way and a most excellent acquisition. less
