A pupil of charles-françois daubigny, emile mathon exhibited at the paris salon between 1868 and 1887. He painted mainly Norman, maritime and rural life scenes. The subject of our painting is part of the Norman life of the 19th century.It is a village party, "a feast at burneval the great, near dieppe" according to the handwritten inscription on the back, probably in the 1870s/1880s. The subject is realistic with the children, the dog, the inhabitants in suit and the red white blue balloons perhaps the feast of July 14th? Bernval the great will become a famous place in the 1890s when Renoir and Pissarro will also choose it as a subject of painting! The style of mathon is impressionist while maintaining a finesse and taste for realistic details.
The works of emile mathon are preserved in museums of dieppe, granville, the harbour and creil.
