Catalogue note: Gustave Loiseau is a French post-impressionist painter, best known for his landscapes and scenes of Paris. Born in Paris, he studied at the École des Arts Décoratifs and then with landscape painter Fernand Quigon.In 1890, Loiseau joined the Pont-Aven artist’s colony in Brittany, where he became friends with Paul Gauguin and Émil Bernard. After experimenting with Pointillism, the artist adopted his own approach to Post-Impressionism, painting landscapes directly from nature, and using cross-hatching strokes to describe light and forms. His technique of en treillis or cross-hatching is recognised as his signature.The artist’s works can be found in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Musée d’Orsay in Paris and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, among others. He died on October 10, 1935 in Paris, France.
