Autumn in the Forest

Ca. 1918. Oil. Room 060

A member of the so-called Bande noire, a group that was founded in conscious opposition to Impressionism and influenced Zuloaga, Ménard specialised in crepuscular Symbolist landscapes with figures associated with Greco-Latin mythology. In this example he includes a naked youth and some cattle beneath autumnal trees, possibly in reference to a pastoral tale.
