Hippolyte Petitjean first completed an apprenticeship in the workshop of a decorative painter and evening courses before he was able to study at the École des Beaux-Arts with Alexander Cabanel from 1872 on a scholarship from his home town of Mâcon. In addition to Cabanel, he was also taught by Pierre Puvis de Chavannes. From 1880 he began to exhibit regularly in the Paris Salon until 1891. In this context he met Georges Seurat, who encouraged him to join the Neo-Impressionists and get to know Paul Signac and Camille Pissarro. From 1886 he began to paint in the pointillist style and exhibited in the Salon des Indépendants in 1891. Further exhibitions with the Symbolists and Impressionists followed.
Petitjean made the watercolour “Convolvulaceae” in a reduced form. Using the possibilities of the watercolor technique, he applies the blue fence slats to the sheet with broad brushes, which gives an idea of ​​the structures of the wood. The tendrils of the winds loop around the fence in different shades of green. The flowers shine bright red, creating a beautiful contrast to the leaves.
