Gustave Cariot, 1872-1950
LE PONT-NEUF, NO. 3,  ENTRE 7 HEURES ET 8 HEURES

Gustave Cariot was born in the Marais section of Paris, an enclave where artists and small merchants flourished. His various views of the city and surrounding countryside soon found favour with certain collectors, including the Russian Sheremetev who acquired a number of works in 1903.

Like Monet and his famous views of the cathedral at Rouen, Cariot strove to capture and document the many shifting faces of a single view.  The present painting comes from his series of works depicting the Pont Neuf. This work was completed between 7 and 8am, with the sun beginning to rise over the river.

Cariot was particularly interested in the technique of the pointillists although he stopped short of wholly adopting their scientific theories. Cariot enjoyed exploring divisionism's ability to communicate the luminescence and mutability of light and colour. Utilising this technique, Cariot painted several series of works in Paris that feature iconic landmarks at different hours of the day and in different seasons.
