This pretty romantic landscape with the harmonious composition of Philippe Budelot is also a work full of life. These are the first landscapes representing scenes of everyday life. In our painting, the characters, accompanied by various and varied animals, meet and exchange. The figures are by the hand of Joseph Swebach-Desfontaines (1769-1823) who used to paint the characters in the paintings of the master of the artist Lazare Bruandet. We can appreciate their finesse of execution and the rendering of details translated by a meticulous design and a fine and delicate touch.

Philippe Budelot was a pupil of the landscape painter Lazare Bruandet. The latter passed on to him the practice of outdoor painting in the vicinity of Paris.
Like his master, his paintings combine a meticulous naturalism in the representation of the landscape with picturesque notes induced by the figures animating his works. As very often in romantic landscapes, the characters are painted in collaboration with other artists.
He exhibited regularly at the Salons from 1793 to 1841 and notably directed the Porcelain Manufactory of Saint Petersburg.

Museums: Abbeville, Arras, Châlon sur Marne, Epinal.
