• With its smooth contours, simplified forms, and rhythmic progression of rolling hills, this print possesses many of the important features of the Pont-Aven School aesthetic. Sérusier adopted this style under the influence of Gauguin.

• Sérusier’s prints are similar in style to his paintings. The harmonious composition of this lithograph, with its strong horizontal bands, recalls Sérusier’s painting Seaweed Gatherer, located in the gallery to your right.

• Each of the prints by Sérusier exhibited here was commissioned for a different album of limited edition prints.
