Catalogue Note

In the early 1870s, Marie François Firmin-Girard spent time around the Crozet torrent, deep in the forests surrounding the Sichon river near his wife’s hometown of Charlieu in the Loire region. This natural wonder appeared in a number of pictures painted between 1872 and 1875, including Au bord du Sichon (sold in these rooms, May 7, 2015, lot 28).
