Monticelli worked primarily in his native Marseille, painting romantic fantasies, landscapes, still lifes, and portraits. The texture of his painted surfaces, with their thick impasto, his rich coloring, and the heavy dabs of white that defined his stylistic technique paved the way for later artists such as van Gogh and Soutine.
