Alfred Roll is born in times that could not be more moving. The technical progress developed fast and with great potential. Big cities are forming and people are starting to live very close together. If art was previously dominated by major trends, then artistic styles and artistic movements alternated in rapid succession. The transitions were no longer flowing. At the same time, different artistic directions were justified. For the first time, artists opened their eyes to society and openly incorporated social criticism into their works. Alfred Roll was an important exponent of naturalism, a current that represented reality without glossing over. To the motives belonged still the life in the country, private family scenes but also the consequences of the big city life.

When Manet declares naturalism at the Paris World Fair to be a point that opened the door to Impressionism, Roll deepened his naturalistic portrayal. He refined the color choice and moved out to paint outdoors. The realistic presentation was the focus of the development of the motifs. Gone are the days of punctual light reflections. The pictures were illuminated by the sunshine and the light play of the day. The brushwork is light and vibrant, without sacrificing a lifelike appearance. The transitions between naturalists and realists are not clearly demarcated. Naturalists show a great love for nature in their works and find suitable motifs here. Realists are more likely to attack the negative effects of industrialization. Roll also showed these approaches and commented on social issues. Stonemasons on the Seine, masons and carpenters represent the painter in figurative paintings.

Alfred Roll was 72 years old and spent much of his life in living Paris. As great as the criticism of big city life was, so important was the exchange between the artists. The city was a center for art and culture and was a source of inspiration for trends. The private life of the artist has remained private. While many of his fellow artists associate bonds with models, Alfred Roll seems to have led a life for painting. © Meisterdrucke
