DESCRIPTION:  The provenance of this picture is particularly clear. It was first sold to his dealer and friend Jacques Rodriguez-Henriquez and then sold directly to the uncle of the present owner in 1946. In this work from 1890, Maximilian Luce assimilated the theories of his neo-impressionist masters Seurat and Signac. The prism of light and the contrasting complementary colours give the work a particularly vivid and accurate light, that of an afternoon summer on the banks of the Seine. Luce enjoyed studying humble subjects and characters.
