"The Return Of Fishing At Sunset After Claude-joseph Vernet (avignon (1714-paris 1789)"
Marine, the return of fishing at sunset after Claude-Joseph (Avignon 1714 – Paris 1789). Oil on canvas of horizontal rectangular shape in its early Louis XV style frame in wood, openwork and gilded stucco, the return of fishing at sunset is a recovery after Claude-Joseph Vernet of one of his works of the series dedicated to the four parts of the day, commissioned by the Countess Du Barry for the pavilion of her castle of Louveciennes. Idealized and poeticized imaginary coastal maritime scene, of a panorama composed of two-thirds of the sky in its upper part and one-third of sea and shore in the lower part; where the essential element, the light comes from the depth of the painting. Taking as a point of view the bottom of a small bay located behind the tall ship, we find the castle surmounted by a flag, here on the left used in the background in a composition of the master dated 1762. The fortifications and the round tower on the right are also found in the bathers near a shore dated 1779. On the shore the day is slowly ending, the first boats are preparing to return while two fishermen are busy, one drags last him his catch in line and the other persists taking advantage of the last moments of luminosity. Work of the Provençal school of Joseph Vernet from the 19th century. Dimensions: height 78.7cm – width 105.6cm – depth 10.6cm.
