Louis Valtat was a painter and printmaker influenced by the Impressionists and the Fauves. Valtat studied at École des Beaux-Arts and, later, at the Académie Julian under the instruction of Jule Dupré, a landscape painter of the Barbizon School. Valtat established his own studio in the early 1890s and debuted his works at the Salon des Indépendants in Paris 1893. Landscape (Paysage), c. 1898, belongs to Valtat’s early independent years where he fused the staccato brushstrokes of the Impressionists with a decisive nod to the Fauves through his use of a large swathe of brilliant greens to dominate the composition.
