Dawn--Hunter with Dog

1882

Henri-Joseph Harpignies

From the collection

Title

Dawn--Hunter with Dog

Date

1882

Description

Created at the height of Harpignies's career, this large watercolor landscape displays the artist's characteristic gray-green palette. Harpignies developed the composition using overlapping planes unified by a meandering stream or road. The artist was deeply influenced by Camille Corot (see cat. no. 45). As is the case with so much of Corot's mature work, it is impossible to specify the locale of Dawn-Hunter with Dog. Instead, it exists as a souvenir of the French countryside Harpignies knew well and represented often.

Dated and signed "h'harpignies" at the lower left, as was the artist's habit.
