Jean Mercier de Latouche

French Artist (1876-1947)


'Snow Scene'

Oil on Canvas

 21 x 25.5 in.


Delatouche’s mastery of the reflective quality of light on snow and on water reveals the influence that Post Impressionism had on the artist early on in his career.  The whiteness of the snow reflects the chromatic intensity of the blueish and orange hues that vividly appear in the glowing sky.  As the sun sets, dusk reveals a counterpoint of colors, with dark, mysterious shadows at play contrasting with the vibrancy of lighter tonalities to heighten the emotional content of the work and create a serenely radiant composition. 

For Delatouche, ‘painting is a meditation on sensual impressions and picture making, and the relationship between the two.'
