    Private Collection, Paris

    Exhibited:
    Salon, London, circa 1900

    A student of Charles L’Huillier (1823-1898) who was a professor at the Beaux-Arts and
    conservator of the Museum in his native town of Le Havre in Northern France, Prunier
    then went to live in Paris in 1887. He exhibited at Gallery Bing, Paris in 1899 and then at
    the Salon from 1901 onwards. He also exhibited at the turn of the century Salons in
    London.

    At first, he found inspiration for his paintings and watercolours from the fortifications,
    construction work sites, demolitions of houses and of blue collar Paris (Examples include “Le
    Canal Saint-Martin”, Permanent Collection of the Musée Carnavalet).
    His landscapes are strong, precise, large dense masses. The same qualities can be noted in
    his views of Brittany, Pyrenees and even London where he spent some time, and
    was particularly influenced by the work of Turner, Whistler and later of Monet. He
    worked in pastel, oil and especially in watercolour. This work is an example of his admiration of Turner.

    In 1894, Gaston Prunier was charged with the honour of decorating the Church of Saint-
    Palais in the Pyrenees with his artistic works.
