Bord de L'Oise a l'aube, Pontoise

Signed and Dated 'L. Hayet. 88' (lower right)
Oil on Canvas

This enchanting waterscape by French artist, Louis Hayet depicts an ethereal sunrise in the historically important town of Pontoise. In this stunning painting depicting the banks of the Oise river, a pointillist sky is painted so that it is shimmering and radiant, and the water reflects a luminous world. The trees, phantomlike, reflect their shadows in the water and evoke a tranquil landscape at dawn.

  This classic post-impressionist scene was painted in the town of Pontoise, just outside of Paris. Pontoise was extremely important to 19th century art as a number of important painters worked there, including Gauguin, Pisarro, Guillaumin, and Cezanne and the landscape of Pontoise can be seen in many works by these artists. The city was also Hayet's birthplace and home and the majority of the artist's impressionist landscapes were painted there in 1888.

 Hayet was born on August 29,1864. He started drawing and painting when he was twelve years old while was traveling with his father who was a peddler. He worked with the neo-impressionist group of Seurat, Signac and Louis & Camille Pisarro. His connections to this group of artists was followed by an extremely productive period as a successful artist in Paris. It was during the years of 1897 to 1890 that Hayet executed his finest works. He spent the later part of his career returning to a more traditional way of working and conducting scientific research on pigment and color.

Today Hayet is renowned as a master of the Pontoise landscape, and important collections of Impressionist artists are not complete without his inclusion. Hayet became famous for his views of the French countryside and was particularly renowned for his paintings depicting the Oise river. Bord de L'Oise a l"aube, Pontoise is a superb and extremely rare example of Hayet's oeuvre at the height of his career. The unusually large size (the artist was known to paint on a much smaller scale) and the exceptional quality of the work make this a true 19th century masterpiece.
