Moonlight in Versailles - Boutet de Monvel (1881-1949)

Oil on canvas representing an embraced couple, seen from the back, observing the “moonlight in Versailles’’ gardens. The man may be distinguished thanks to his top hat whereas the woman wears a white dress and a charming round hat with purple ribbons. The back-lighting moon colours the scene with strange tones in a dominant of night blues, brown and green: the white dress of the young lady reflects shades of pale blue, while the frock coat of the man turns into intense black. The pronounced outlining of the shapes in a very graphic and synthetic way is typical of the artist’s painting before the war.
Signed: « Bernard B. de Monvel » on the lower right.
Circa: 1910 on the lower right.
