Did you know?

Albert Lebourg was the leader of an artistic movement called the Rouen School for the fact that they worked independently and outside the Parisian art scene.

Description

Albert Rouen was known for his work in charcoal, the medium used for this drawing. It likely depicts a scene from his native Rouen, a port city in northern France. He examined the city and provincial life around it frequently in his works. Here, four horses pull a carriage before a bridge, likely along the banks of the Seine River.
