VIEW OF PASAJES DE SAN JUAN, SPAIN, OIL ON PANEL, UNFRAMED, SIGNED AND DATED BY GUSTAVE COLIN
Student of Dutilleux and of Couture, Gustave-Henri Colin made his début as an artist in 1863 at the Salon des Refusés. Afterwards the official Salon regularly welcomed his works, notably his scenes of the Basque Country. He participated at the first Impressionist exhibition and at the Société Nationale, where he was very much appreciated. Subjects of the Basque Country remained central in his work, his compositions were filled with vibrant colours and the effects of light. The village of Pasajes, near the Franco-Spanish border had already attracted Victor Hugo when he visited there in 1843.
