About Corner of the garden rue Carsal

The artwork titled “Corner of the garden rue Carsal” is an oil on canvas cityscape painting created by the artist Paul Gauguin around 1881 in Paris, France. This piece exemplifies the Impressionist movement, known for its emphasis on light and color to capture a moment in time. The painting is currently held in a private collection.

In the artwork, one observes a tranquil scene of a garden corner that conveys a sense of everyday life and natural beauty. The composition utilizes loose, fluid brushstrokes, which is characteristic of Impressionism, allowing the colors and light to blend naturally. Amidst this garden setting various green shades and the textures of foliage are depicted, enhancing the artwork’s vibrant atmosphere. Subtle touches of red suggest the presence of flowers, contributing to the impression of a lush, living space. The vertical lines of the trees frame the scene and lead the viewer’s eye towards the obscured architecture in the background, possibly a glimpse of the urban environment beyond the garden’s sanctuary. The interplay of shadow and light on the path and foliage gives depth to the garden’s quiet corner, making Gauguin’s work a quintessential representation of the Impressionist objective: to capture the fleeting moments of light and color in everyday scenes.
