Description A windy day on a rough heath with a painter seated at his easel. Antoine Guillemet was a French landscape painter, whose painting was related to both the Barbizon School and the Impressionists. His paintings were often views of Normandy, especially in the 1870s, 1880s and 1890s. From 1872 he turned towards naturalism, influenced by his friend Emil Zola. Antoine Guillemet was depicted with Fanny Claus and Berthe Morisot in Eduard Manet's famous painting The Balcony (Musée d'Orsay, Paris).
