This painting of 'the Bougival locks' depicts waterside life complete with an almost homey feel to the piece. The blue cloud-dotted sky compliments the darker blues used in the water while drawing the attention of the viewer to the whites of the houses and bridge. Thick brush strokes are utilized to emphasize detail.

Constantin Kluge was a Russian-born French painter best known for his naturalistic scenes of Paris and French countryside in a style reminiscent of Albert Marquet. Kluge was born to a wealthy military family on January 29, 1912 in Riga, Latvia, which was then a large, industrial Russian port city. He spent much of his childhood and young adult life between Manchuria, Beijing, and Hong Kong, where he discovered a love for brush and ink painting. Kluge studied architecture at the École des Beaux Arts in Paris and earned his diploma in 1937. Upon graduating, he painted the city’s river banks and streets before returning to Shanghai. With the rise of Communism in China, the artist fled to Paris in 1950 and began exhibiting in French Salons. He died on January 9, 2003 in Paris, France. Kluge’s works are in the collections of the Musée d’Orsay and the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris, among others.
