Bridge over the Seine
Information about author
The painting 'Bridge over the Seine' shows a river flowing between two banks. In the foreground, in the lower-left corner, you can see the roof of a building. On the right, on a steep bank, there is a pier with a metal bridge and boats can be seen at the back. Trees are shown along the bank, followed by buildings. Then there is a suspension bridge on metal arches, with a boat and people sailing underneath. At the back, in high relief, the buildings of the town can be seen. The painting is done in a post-impressionist manner, with small strokes and close to Pointillism. The artist not only reproduces the natural phenomena – fog over the river in grey-blue tones, dusky light, underlined by bluish-blue-pink blotches – but also the melancholy of the city itself and its atmosphere.
