About Stabble near Dieppe

The artwork titled “Stable near Dieppe” was painted by the renowned artist Paul Gauguin in 1885 while in France. As an oil on canvas, it measures 35 by 27 centimeters and is a quintessential example of the Impressionist movement. This landscape genre painting is currently housed in a private collection, and captures the rural serenity associated with the outskirts of Dieppe.

The artwork depicts a bucolic scene featuring a stable surrounded by verdant vegetation. The vibrant green hues of the trees and shrubs contrast with the warm red tones of the stable’s roof, suggesting a dance of light and shadow typical of Impressionist works. Gauguin’s brushwork appears quite loose and dynamic, contributing to a sense of liveliness and atmospheric depth. A clear blue sky peeks through the foliage, hinting at a serene, sunlit day. The composition is balanced with a strong diagonal from the tree in the foreground, which directs the viewer’s gaze towards the central structures. A chicken can be spotted in the lower right-hand corner, grounding the scene in everyday rural life. The overall effect is one of harmonious tranquility, rendered in a style that captures the essence of a fleeting moment as perceived by the artist.
