Historical Description

Maurice de Vlaminck Le Hameau Pres de Verneuil (The Hamlet near Verneuil) c. 1950 is an exquisite example of Vlaminck’s prestige with depicting landscapes. We gaze up a country road lined with barren trees towards a farmhouse pleasantly situated on a bend in the road. The trees have mostly lost their leaves, and those that do remain are burnt orange in color, signaling the changing of the seasons. The sky is a tumultuous mixture of dark blues, grays, and patches of bright white. A storm rumbles on the horizon and the dark colors settle upon the landscape. They infiltrate the windows of the house and lay upon the roof. Vlaminck shades the grass in dark greens, tans, and grays giving it a cold appearance. We can almost imagine that the ground is frozen and hard, still waiting to be warmed up and released by the spring sun. The bare branches of the trees tessellate up into the cloudy sky, guiding our gaze upwards. Touches of cool white highlight the sides of the trees as a wintry sun sheds its light upon the landscape. Using a deep palate of colors with vivid dashes of white, Vlaminck manages to bring an intense and tangible mood to Maurice de Vlaminck The Hamlet near Verneuil (Le Hameau Pres de Verneuil), c. 1950.

This color heliogravure on Arches wove paper is signed in the plate lower left: ‘Vlaminck’. Numbered from the edition of 250 in pencil in the lower left margin, this work is also stamped with the Guy Spitzer, Paris blindstamp in image lower left.
