“I would attribute only one quality to myself: that of being sincere. I work in privacy, when able, and strive to translate as best I can the impressions I receive from nature.”

 

One of the foremost Post-Impressionist painters, Gustave Loiseau was profoundly influenced by the great masterpieces of the Impressionists. A champion of painting the landscape en plein air, Loiseau embraced the use of bold colour as he explored and expanded the Impressionist style.

In 1895 Loiseau was introduced to the renowned Parisian art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel with whom he agreed an exclusive contract to sell his paintings. Loiseau’s first solo exhibition at Galerie Durand-Ruel took place from March to April in 1898. No exhibition catalogue was made for this exhibition, however Les Peupliers was first sold through Durand-Ruel in Paris and a review in La Revue Blanche by the art critic Thadée Natanson described landscapes depicting a range of scenes including ‘trembling haystacks and poplar trees’ which provides strong evidence that this painting was exhibited in Loiseau’s very first solo exhibition with Durand-Ruel.

Les Peupliers depicts a vibrant landscape of the countryside surrounding the village of Nesle-la-Vallée where Loiseau lived from 1890. Painted in 1898 at this pivotal point in the artists career, this magnificent landscape represents the coming together of Loiseau’s greatest influences - the Pont-Aven School and Loiseau’s Impressionists forbears and reveals the young artists immeasurable talent and keen eye for observation through his ability to depict an atmospheric landscape through his application of paint.
