The present work is striking for its glistening and jewel-like palette but above all for being exemplary of the artist’s much-fêted ability to capture the intangible and mystical atmosphere of a particular moment in time. He was not a painter of people but a painter of the nuances of place and of time: ‘He considered that the silent harmony of things is enough to evoke the presence of those who live among them. Indeed such presences are felt throughout his works. Deserted they may be, but never empty.’ (Camille Mauclair, Henri Le Sidaner, Paris, 1928, p. 12)
