Work of Impressionist Master Jean Baptiste Armand Guillaumin in Abington’s January Winter AuctionJan 21, 2021 17:00 EST
Jean Baptiste Armand Guillaumin was one of the founding members of Impressionism and among the least-known Impressionist masters. Coming from a modest background, Guillaumin worked a series of odd jobs to pay for his evening drawing lessons. In 1863, he attended the Académie Suisse, where he met his lifelong friends Paul Cézanne and Camille Pissarro. His early works are notable for their thick, fluid brushstrokes and muted palette. Later, under the influence of Vincent van Gogh, Guillaumin began to use brighter and more expressive colors. The upcoming Abington Auction Gallery event features an oil painting by Jean Baptiste Armand Guillaumin. Titled Bord de Riviere, the landscape painting shows a riverside with trees.
The auction also highlights a painting by French artist René Rimbert, who invented “painting of silence.” On his visit to Germany, Rimbert befriended painter and poet Max Jacob. Talking about Rimbert’s work, Jacob once said: “Something of the calm of nature emanates from Rimbert’s landscape, it is as if he pledged to compete with the silence of matter.” The event also offers jewelry, watches, Asian arts, and furniture.
