  • In this landscape a small, sturdy cottage is surrounded by a turbulent swirl of energetic lines that transform the trees’ foliage into flat, rolling shapes.
  • The dramatic, tortured forms may well have been inspired by the trees, buffeted by strong winds, in the coastal village of Le Pouldu, where Seguin lived during the summer he made this etching.
  • This print relates closely to Seguin’s painting of a similar subject displayed in adjacent gallery H208. In both works Seguin uses powerful, sinuous lines to create dynamic compositions.
