The Novel. Edward Cucuel (American 1875-1954). Oil on canvas.
Cucuel trained in the studios l’Académie Julien and l’École des Beaux-Arts. Pupil of Jean Leon Gerome. In 1896, Cucuel retured to San Francisco and began his career as an illustrator of magazines. Although his style was strongly influenced by the creativity of German Expressionists, he finally turned to Impressionism. He painted genre scenes and figures in landscapes, often using his family members for models rather than professionals.  A specialty was using a vibrant palette and rich impasto to depict women in sun-dappled landscape settings.
