ANGRAND, Charles
(b. 1854, Criquetot-sur-Ouville, d. 1926, Rouen)

Couple in the Street

1887
Oil on canvas on card, 39 x 33 cm
Musée d'Orsay, Paris

Angrand was one of Seurat's first followers. He moved on from vigorous and spontaneous brushwork to a dense fabric of points. His working-class couple out walking have their own simple dignity, and are well established in the light ochres of the clearly structured street scene.
