Lot 350Ziem, Félix. "Cemetery island of San Michele"
Signed lower left. Verso, two old adhesive labels with the owner of the note M. Courban and stamped no. 3391. Oil on canvas 42 x 63 cm. Restored Frame. The evening mood with the setting sun in front of the island of San Michele shows Félix Ziems masterful handling of colour and a variety of light-and-shadow effects. The lighting of the background makes the architecture and Staffagen in the foreground, in spite of the differentiated local colours, like a silhouette appear. The sky and the water in your graduated shades be sought to the imaging Subject, almost abstract character-defining, so, as William Turner is to implement after his previous visit Venice,. Ziem is brought to a subject largely dissolved in the image statement, which is the artistic view of the French Impressionists very close.
