View of Lake Geneva from La Tour-de-Peilz
Painted in 1876, Vue du Léman (View of Lake Geneva) resurfaced in 2016 in Granville Museum in Normandy. It looks towards the head of the lake. The Pointe de la Becque (the sunlit bank at the bottom left) can be clearly seen, with the Dent de Morcles, Catogne, and Dents du Midi in the foreshortened background. The artist worked the colours with a palette knife to make the landscape emerge from a harmony of blues, carefully interspersed with warmer shades (the strand in the foreground, the jetty, and the sailboat).
