Celebrated Post-Impressionist artist Henri Lebasque (1865-1937) was born in Maine-et-Loire, France and studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. He was influenced by Pierre Bonnard, Camille Pissarro, Auguste Renoir and Edouard Vuillard amongst others. His palette is very luminous and colourful capturing the diffusion of natural light in his paintings.
Executed in 1934, this work is a wonderful example of Lebasque’s nude paintings. The painting opens onto an intimate scene depicting a young woman resting during a hot summer day. The wide opened door leads us into her garden. By the application of airy brushstrokes, we can imagine hearing the sound of the birds in the growing vegetation and the breeze entering the premises.
