Art Sunday #113: Armand Guillaumin – Sunset at Ivry (Soleil couchant à Ivry)


Armand Guillaumin (February 16, 1841 – June 26, 1927) was a French impressionist painter and lithographer.

Noted for their intense colours, Guillamin’s paintings are represented in major museums around the world. He is best remembered for his landscapes of Paris, the Creuse département, and the area around Les Adrets-de-l’Estérel near the Mediterranean coast in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region of France. Guillamin was called the leader of the École de Crozant, a diverse group of painters who came to depict the landscape in the region of the Creuse around the village of Crozant. One of these depictions, titled Landscape in Crozant, is housed in the Chicago Institute of Arts.  His bust is in the square near the village church.

  1. Nice one. His colors reminds me of a Swedish painter. Eugen Jansson, prince Eugen. He was a prince in Sweden, but he liked to paint and wanted to become an artist. But back then in the 1900’s the royal house didn’t allow him to work or sell any paintings. Nowadays he is surely remembered as a good Swedish artist and he donated his home “Waldemarsudde” to the Swedish state I think. It’s an exhibition place now and it’s a great place to visit. “Pling”
