Georges Michel 1763-1843

Oil on canvas 38x48 cm

Certificate of Mr Schulman expert of the painter

He devoted most of his art to representing the still rural landscapes and the mills of the Butte Montmartre and their surroundings, in a manner influenced both by the Dutch masters of the landscape (Jacob van Ruisdael (1628 / 29-1682) , Meindert Hobbema (1638-1709), Jacob Huysmans (en) (1633-1696) and Rembrandt (1606-1669)), and through romanticism, as Théophile Thoré-Bürger (1807-1869) emphasizes, who compares him in Le Constitutionnel under the title "History of Michel, eccentric painter", to these three great early Dutch painters of the seventeenth century. It was from 1810, with the generosity of the Baron d'Ivry, that he began to be relieved of material worries.
