Park of Sansac (1885). Charnay was born at Charlieu in the Loire, later went to Paris, but was apparently largely self-taught. Some of his paintings showing scenes from middle class life seem to me to have real charm, in their naive fashion. I expect that they will be unfamiliar in any case! Most of them seem to be in a museum in Charlieu, though this is in the National Gallery in London (doubtless in that room in its bowels where they keep the odds and ends).
Now some seaside pictures, painted at Yport in Normandy. It makes a change from Trouville.
Hunting for mushrooms, or: how to kill your guests. Safer to keep to blackberries.
Lady fishing, with an audience of well-behaved ducks.
