'Le Mountain en Hiver' Symbolist Landscape with Houses in a Valley
This twilight scene has a deep sense of mystery, underscored by the warmth of the glowing tones. The complex pattern of the tree branches create a mystical feeling throughout this beautiful landscape, typical of the Symbolist paintings by artists from Northern Europe at the end of the 19th century. Charles Bouthéon was a French Impressionist and Modern artist born in Lyon, known for his outstanding oil landscapes which have proved highly sought-after at auctions internationally.
