Small boats and peaceful swans share the still waters of Mortefontaine, some twenty miles north of Paris, where in recent years France had signed treaties easing hostility with America and the British Empire. The Indianapolis Museum of Art comments that “In this canvas Bidauld shows his ability to hold all elements of the composition in balance. His precise, smooth brush strokes are the ideal vehicle to transcribe the unruffled surface of the water. The treatment of light and reflection also contributes to the effect of icy perfection.” A celebrated Neoclassical landscape painter, Bidauld spent five years in Italy developing his art before he submitted his first piece to the Salon.
