DESCRIPTION:  The full title is: Chêne en hiver a St. Cezaire S/Siagne, Ch. Nègre 1852 No. 2, which is written in pencil on the verso probably by a Nègre family member.

The full village name is Saint-Cezaire-sur-Siagne, which lies 15 km southwest of Grasse. A haunting and unusual image for the period of a winter scene. The bare trees and spare landscape are minimalist in feel, and the print is quite beautiful, although the scan doesn't do it justice.

PROVENANCE:  Nègre family.
