Object description :

"Pierre Etienne Lesueur - Landscape With A Faun"
Pierre Etienne LESUEUR (Active between 1791 and 1810) Oil on panel 27 x 38.5 cm (42 x 53 cm with the frame) Signed and dated lower right "E. LESUEUR / 1790" Very beautiful early 19th century wooden frame sculpted and gilded Active in Paris Pierre Etienne Lesueur is presented as a landscape painter, a pupil of Jean Pillement. He exhibited at the Salon des Beaux-Arts in Paris between 1791 and 1810. Our painting is dated 1790. In 1791, he exhibited at the Salon several small landscapes with figures as well as a "Landscape with a waterfall e Toni", a " Vue des temples de Pestum" and a "Moonlight reflected in a pimp with furious bacchantes holding a torch" In 1791, he sold his collection of paintings in Paris and announced the desire to leave to travel to indulge joys of landscape painting. Poussin, the great masters and Claude Gelée show his influences from the French and Italian masters, which we can clearly see in our landscapes. We have often confused Louis Etienne with a painter during the Revolution and whose revolutionary gouaches can still be found today in our school textbooks. It is probably in fact Jean-Baptiste Lesueur, a painter who held municipal office during the Revolution, and whom the Almanac of the Year XII describes as "painter of historical genre figures and decorations", a painter imagine therefore of craftsmanship.
