Guigou paintings added to GeocodedArt
painting by Paul Camille Guigou (1834-1871). Virtually all of Guigou's paintings were of rural settings, though not wilderness; usually there were a few solitary figures and a distant man-made structure that were the reason the painter and the figures were in the area.
This image in particular shows a realism in the foliage that is reminiscent of older styles of painting, but his choice of subject, a rugged, unromantic setting, is typical for this artist and has a very modern sense.
