Une Rue le Soir [A Village Street at Evening] by Jean-Charles Cazin poster print
70 x 50 cm poster print featuring the nocturnal atmospheric scene Une Rue le Soir [A Village Street at Evening] by Jean-Charles Cazin, from the National Galleries of Scotland Collection. Printed on smooth matt art paper 240gsm, delivered rolled in a cardboard tube, image size is 39 x 35 cm.
In nocturnal scenes such as this he appears far closer to the Symbolists of his era than to his Impressionist contemporaries. Given the relatively flat topography of this scene it may well be that it depicts a village in Seine-et-Marne rather than one of the steeply sloping villages on the channel coast near Boulogne. This highly atmospheric pastel is illustrative of the haunting sense of melancholy which Cazin could conjure up in his best work.
Jean-Charles Cazin (May 25, 1840 – March 17, 1901) was a French landscape painter and ceramicist.
