"Narcisse Guilbert (1878-1942) - The Seine At Croisset / School Of Rouen"Narcisse Guilbert (1878-1942) La seine à Croisset Oil on canvas Signed lower left in red 38 x 46 cm Montparnasse frame in carved wood From a modest family in the Normandy countryside, in the country of Caux, Narcisse Guilbert is apprentice when he meets the “outdoor master”. While continuing to earn a living, he enrolled in the School of Fine Arts. On Sundays he sets up his easel near the Seine or on the plateaus overlooking the city. His landscapes with very sure colors and a great sensitivity attract the attention of a wealthy amateur who provides the painter with the means to devote himself to his art. In addition to Norman works inspired by sites so often visited by this generation of artists, there are sumptuous seascapes painted on the Breton coasts.
