Oil on canvas
Signed lower left: ‘Abel Truchet’
After going to the Academie Julian in Paris, by 1891, Louis Abel-Truchet starts to exhibit his work at the Salon d’Automne, the Salon des Artistes Français and then at the Salon of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts of which he becomes a member in 1910. Especially renowned for his genre scenes, he adopts a post-impressionist style and dedicates a great part of his work to represent Parisian scenes, and in particular around the life in Montmartre. Away from mundane encounters or elegant people from the Belle-Epoque, this “Garden in Spring” shows his talent in painting suggestion and emotion. In this composition, Abel-Truchet tries to express the soft harmony of a spring day. Through a dynamic and lively touch, he succeeds in expressing the subtle effects of the light and the warm and intimate atmosphere of the garden. Though his attention to suggesting a sensation, an emotion, this painting may be seen together with another one executed at the same time and today kept in the collections of the Indianapolis Museum of Art (inv. n° 79.324) in the United-States.
