Catalogue Note

Fascinated with the myriad effects of light, Cariot was greatly influenced by the freedom and spontaneity of Monet’s haystack series from 1890- 1891, as well as his views of Rouen Cathedral. The majority of his subjects are rural but they also include the rooftops of Paris, the Seine in all seasons and formal gardens. The present lush composition also alludes to some paintings by Gustave Caillebotte of his garden in Petit-Gennevilliers after his purchase of the house in 1881 and elaborate magnificent flowerbeds. Initially captivated with Pointillist technique, here Cariot incorporates elements of this style by employing individual and vibrant brushstrokes to communicate the warm luminescence of this bright landscape. 

Cariot was a member of the Société des artistes indépendants where his paintings were exhibited in the early years of the twentieth century. It was there that  his pictures would catch the eye of two of the most important collectors of the time, Serguei Dimitrievitch and Armand Cabrol.
