Catalogue Note

Like many French landscape painters of his generation, Bidauld travelled to Italy and its countryside starting in 1785 to complete his artistic training.  His sojourn, which lasted five years, proved to be the defining experience of his career and the many plein air sketches and paintings he produced while there provided inspiration throughout the rest of his artistic career. Though he returned to Italy only once after his initial visit, he drew heavily upon his fond memories of the landscape and continued to paint Italianate subjects throughout his career. Dated 1830, this crisply executed view of a village was executed in Paris, but very clearly reflects Bidauld's Italianate inspirations, both in handling and composition.

This painting is to be included in Stéphane Rouvet's upcoming catalogue raisonné on the artist.
