Henri Ottmann worked in Brussels at the beginning of the 20th century. It was here at the Salon of Free Aesthetics in 1903 that he first exhibited three views of the Luxembourg station, painted in different weather conditions (wind, frost, fog). Throughout the series the artist’s palette is similar to that of the early Impressionists, particularly Renoir and Monet by whom Ottman was hugely influenced. Indeed the motif of the signal rising directly out of the frame at the front of the composition is taken directly from Monet’s La gare Saint-Lazare, Les signaux, 1877 (Hanover, Niedersachsisches Landesmuseum). The sister picture to the present lot is in the permanent collection of the Musée d’Orsay, Paris. The third version was formerly in the collection of Sir Sean Connery and was sold Sotheby’s, New York, 8th November 2006, lot 241 where it set the world record for the artist.
