After completing his studies at the École des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, Gustave Loiseau went to Pont-Aven in Brittany where he met Paul Gaugin, Henri Moret, and Maxime Maufra.
Although he quickly befriended Gaugin, he was barely influenced by his style. Loiseau remained faithful to Impressionism and developed his own particular, subtle variation. Naturally shy and rather introverted, he continued to work in his own style even alongside such an influential group as that in Pont-Aven, painting his favourite motifs with his preference for fog, snow, rain, and atmospheric hazy landscapes. Only influenced by Seurat and Signac, he eventually emancipated himself from their influence and adopted his own pointillist technique that was again closer to the beginnings of Impressionism.

As early as 1895 he exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants and his paintings were highly praised by visitors and critics, including the art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel, who was impressed by his work and took him under contract.

Loiseau's works display a luminous colour palette, impasto brushwork and a selection of motifs corresponding more to the Impressionists. Like Sisley, he would search for a beautiful location along the banks of a river which could offer various impressive moods to be captured at different times of the day and in different weather conditions.
His painting style is not composed of strict, uniform dots of colour, as with Signac, but rather of diverse, dynamic brushstrokes capturing the movements of the water surface or the branches and leaves of the trees in the wind. In these brushstrokes, called "touche croisée" or "en treillis", his technique is more reminiscent of Monet's late work.

The work offered here, depicting a beautiful wintry landscape on the banks of the Eure, presents an impressive example of Loiseau's painting.
