About this artwork

Beginning his career as a landscape draftsman in Rouen, Lebourg won a post as a drawing instructor in Algiers, returning to France in 1873 to marry Marie Guilloux, seen here. Lebourg participated in the fourth and fifth Impressionist exhibitions, in 1879 and 1880, respectively. This drawing, made about that time, combines Bonvin’s Realism with the mysterious, impressionistic qualities of the medium.
