Ferdinand du Puigaudeau was a French Impressionist artist born in Nantes. At the age of 18, Puigaudeau took up painting, but did not begin to truly form his own style until he traveled to Tunisia and Italy. His first known works are dated in 1886, the same year that he moved to Pont-Aven where he became friends with Paul Gaugin, Paul Durand-Ruel and Edgar Degas. During this time, Puigaudeau painted compositions of lively merry-go-round scenes and fun fairs.

Puigaudeau was generally a landscape artist, who was talented in portraying light in his Impressionistic compositions. In 1904, he traveled to Venice where he completed more than 50 beautiful Italian landscapes, cityscapes and nighttime scenes. In 1907, Puigaudeau bought the Kervaudu estate where he remained for the rest of his life, and was nicknamed "the hermit of Kervaudu" by his friend Degas. Here, he painted tranquil, sweeping landscapes and Impressionist scenes of his gardens and flowerbeds.

Thank you jandchris for your thoughts on this Fernand Puigaudeau painting. Have a nice Saturday :-)

This reminds me of van Gogh also. A lovely painting, with a dramatic sky, and you can almost feel the wind blowing. Thank you oynot.

A brilliant painting by Puigaudeau. Thanks for introducing him to me. I love everything about this from the setting sun and the feeling one gets from the gust of wind.....

I find this painting absolutely beautiful. It reminds me more of Van Gogh than Gaugin or Degas.
