Signed, inscribed and dated ‘A Lebourg Paris Dec 79’ (lower left), inscribed ‘Notre Dame Vue prise du Pont de la Tournelle’ (lower right) Oil on canvas 64 x 92 cm Painted in Paris in 1879 Provenance: Private collection, Switzerland Lebourg was close friends with Victor Delamare and Gustave Morin, and started drawing with charcoal and painting by the Seine in his hometown – Montfort- sur- Risle. As a professor in Algiers around 1875, he was astonished by his surroundings and focused on the exploration of colour and light. He discovered the white city with its nuances of various shades. With his distinctive brushstroke, he started to paint winter views dominated by the color white, like this snowy view of Notre Dame, signed and dated on the lower left - a good representation of his style, featuring different soft shades of white pastel colors.
