« Peinture de Versailles », painting - Claude Assier, 19th century
This watercolour on cardboard was made by 19th century artist Claude Assier. The subject here is three sculptures, looking down on an extensive lake, probably located in the heart of the garden of the Palace of Versailles.
A form of softness emanates from this composition. The green tones employed by the artist are broken with brown hues. He manages to restore the oxidation of bronze, thanks to the use of blue hues.
We love this watercolor, it brings a form of freshness to a room and invites contemplation.
