Description

Guilloux’s The Deluge appeared in the famous L’Estampe Originale, a series of nine albums of original prints published in Paris between 1893 and 1895, representing the pinnacle of fin-de-siècle printmaking. The albums included numerous landscapes by masters of the genre, including Camille Pissarro, Charles Dulac, Henri Rivière, and Joseph Pennell (all in this exhibition). In The Deluge, drenched poplar trees are reflected in shimmering pools of water. Guilloux incorporated the aesthetic of Art Nouveau into his entirely original, stylized landscapes.
