Adolphe Monticelli: 'Sunrise'

Explore the paintings

This painting is a companion piece to the artist's 'Sunset'. Both Cézanne and Van Gogh were admirers of Monticelli's use of thickly applied paint or 'impasto', and the directional brushstrokes in his later work. The sun can be seen rising in the centre of the picture.

This landscape was probably painted in the last year of the artist's life.
