In Nneka’s words:

Eugène Carrière, 1849-1906

Eugène Carrieèe was a revered French symbolist and during his lifetime a central figure in the Parisian art world.

Though not as well known today, his close friends and followers included artists such as Rodin, Gauguin and Matisse (a student of his). He was known for his signature palette of browns and greys and his paintings possessed a dream like quality.

In his work he strove to capture the essence and spirit of nature than a mere visual appearance and for the most part depicted domestic family scenes using his own family.
