Le Sidaner’s landscapes are intimate manifestations of the artist’s imaginative psyche, which possess an astonishing luminosity through its subtle harmonies and painterly application of pigment. Delighting in the effect of light, the artist draws out his architectural and domestic environments in an intimate and atmospheric musicality. The artist plays with an earthy muted palette coupled by crisp and controlled brushstrokes, which capture a delicately ethereal moment that is as lively as it is serene. Through a distinct visual language that expresses an understated mystery, Le Sidaner pays tribute to his Symbolist roots, which as Camille Mauclair observes, is intensified by the absence of figures: ‘he considered that the silent harmony of things is enough to evoke the presence of those who live among them. Indeed, such presences are felt throughout his works. Deserted they may be but never empty. (Camille Mauclair, Henri Le Sidaner, Paris, 1928, p. 12).
