Eugene Carriere, Her Mother's Kiss, 1899

Eugene Carriere, Her Mother's Kiss, 1899

Eugene Carriere (1849-1906) developed his own Symbolist style using monochrome or low-key painting techniques. His colours tend towards neutral browns and greys with strong contrasts of light and shadow. Subjects are in a ghostly mist ‘like those seen a few paces away in the London fog’.
