Gustave Madelain established his career as a painter of city scenes created in a Post-Impressionist manner. He debuted at the Salon des Indépendants in 1907 and gained a fine reputation as a painter. He mainly painted street and riverside scenes in Rouen, Le Havre and of course Paris.
Using lush impasto and rich impressionistic brushwork, Madelain has captured a busy afternoon along the Seine. The flurry of activity seen in this picture is typical of any of his works.
