Original oil on original canvas, signed lower right and titled on the back.
Stunning representation of the Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute in Venice, located at the southern end of the Grand Canal.
It should be noted that the construction of this building lasted more than 50 years (1631-1687) and that it still contains today and within its sacristy, many paintings including the famous "Wedding at Cana" by TINTORET.
Sublime colors, remarkable precision of the many details, beautiful luminosity, in short, a perfectly executed and balanced work.
The influence of the DUFY brothers is very present here but cannot of course and in any way undermine the immense talent of our artist, quite the contrary. A feast for the eyes.

Catherine GARROS has always had a pencil handy. Self-taught, she draws on any occasion. However, she does not follow an academic course at the Beaux-Arts or the Arts-Deco. She attends a few classes that reinforce her passion for watercolor, which she declines exclusively through seascapes. She began to paint in oil in 1990. Little by little, the characters appeared on her canvases, and the landscapes diversified. Influenced by Raoul DUFY and Henri MATISSE, she is the youngest of the great names of the current École Provençale. By contemplating his works, one immediately guesses the feminine sensitivity of his precise hand, transmitting through each painting a real joie de vivre, a cheerfulness and a childlike optimism. A gentle tranquility emerges from his paintings, a rhythm all in lightness and a subtle palette. "I need the color, especially the warm ones !" she declares.
Catherine GARROS is an outstanding colorist. His luminous paintings tell us about the simple little pleasures of life, and invite us to wander and party. Busy fishermen, small port where barges contemplate the boats, picturesque markets of Provence, merry-go-rounds and carousels of yesteryear,… She does not imitate, does not copy, but recreates a personal world, a poetic and original metaphor for reality. "For Catherine GARROS it is a question of setting up a game of correspondence in order to translate a feeling in front of a motif, strong enough to be shared, the little sensation as CÉZANNE said" - Jean PERREAU, extract from "GARROS, the poetry of real” – Editions Galerie ESTADES 1999.
The painter knows how to transform himself into a magician. Air, light and color are the three fundamental elements of his work. The composition of his paintings may well be rigorous, his invoice is not rigid and on the contrary leaves a certain latitude to the drawing, the form and the colors. A blend of structured strength and harmony. Her sincerity and the spontaneous vision she offers of life have made her famous. Very quickly, she met her audience. His paintings are present in many European and American collections. Catherine GARROS has been exhibited exclusively and permanently since 1990 on the 4 sites of the ESTADES Gallery, in Paris, Lyon, Toulon, and Baden-Baden (Germany).
