Marine bleue, Effet de vague
The Cliffs At Camaret, c.1892
A member of the Post-Impressionist group known as Les Nabis (the Prophets), Lacombe is better known as a sculptor. The Nabis emulated Gauguin, and sought to strengthen line, form and design, things sometimes overly dissolved by the Impressionists.
The group were fond of the fields and coast of Brittany.
The influence of Japanese prints is obvious in Cliffs at Camaret, in particular.
