The reflection of trees upon a body of water was a motif frequently explored by the Impressionists. The River Eure referenced in the present work is situated in northwestern France, with its source in Normandy. Here, Loiseau adeptly conveys the shimmer of the trees’ reflection in a singular moment. This work’s rich surface, composed of spontaneous brushwork and areas of thickly applied paint, exemplifies the artist's instinctive use of Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist techniques which he derived from his close relationship with Claude Monet. Loiseau seemingly preferred the atmospheric light of dawn or dusk to high noon, as depicted in the present work. In Bords de l’Eure, Loiseau eliminates almost every sign of human presence, choosing instead to focus on the extraordinarily dramatic possibilities of nature.
