Object description :

"Bathers Near A Shore. School Of Joseph Vernet (avignon 1714 - Paris 1789)"
Period late 18th century Oil on canvas and its original stretcher. Presented in a Louis XVI style frame in carved and gilded wood Framed size: 59 x 69 cm. The canvas alone: 45.5 x 55.5 cm Famous for his views of the sea, Joseph Vernet was able to assimilate his study of the paintings of Claude Gellée Le Lorrain and his apprenticeship with Pannini and then Manglard. It is reported that it was when he arrived in Marseilles that Joseph Vernet felt a profound upheaval in front of the sea, which was then redoubled during a storm at sea before arriving in Rome. It was on the occasion of the commission from Louis XV in 1753 that Vernet particularly showed the greatness of his talent: in the series of Ports of France, he represents with a permanent concern for truth the different urban aspects of our coast (see the paintings almost entirely exhibited in Paris at the Musée National de la Marine, depot of the Louvre Museum). Anxious to represent in these ports the architectures like nature, Vernet is also concerned with humanizing these views featuring the common people, merchants and sailors in a lively and fanciful activity. This concern is omnipresent in his work. In storms and storms, a man always tries to oppose the unleashing of the elements. In a more peaceful climate, our painting thus features bathers in the foreground while in the background, a harbor unfolds, dominated by a tower, into which a tall ship enters. Bathers, rocks like the round tower are recurrent in Vernet's art... Good state of preservation. Sold with detailed invoice & certificate
