Lot Essay

This work will be included in the forthcoming Albert André catalogue critique being prepared by Béatrice Roche, Alain Girard and Flavie Durand-Ruel.

The present work depicts the same subject as Au bord de la Seine (fig. 1), which the artist painted in 1906 and exhibited at the Salon d'Automne that same year. In a letter dated 11 April 1901, Camille Pissarro wrote to André, "I have just seen your paintings at Durand-Ruel. I find you have made much progress...All my congratulations" (quoted in Albert André, Peintre, Un contemporain de toujours, exh. cat., Muse´e d'art sacre´ du Gard, Pont Saint Esprit, 2011, p. 71). It is this kind of encouragement, along with the support of his dealer Paul Durand-Ruel, which helped push André into an intense period of creativity during which he would paint both Dans le parc, bord de la Seine and its sister piece.
