Landscape With Cattle

TROYON, Constant (1810 - 1865)

[image: Landscape With Cattle]

Media: oil on panel

Size: 18.8 x 12.7 cm

Acquired: 1924; Bequest; T.H. Thomas

Accession Number: NMW A 2504

This bucolic scene of a man herding cattle in the soft glow of sunset is typical of Troyon’s later works. Although he began as a porcelain painter, and then entered academic training, his paintings became increasingly naturalistic. The animal scenes were particularly popular among collectors. In relation to his observation of light, he could even be considered a pre-Impressionist.
