Original oil on original canvas, signed lower right and titled on the back.
A true immersion in the fascinating impressionist universe of this artist who will no longer be presented, known and recognized for the subtlety of his work with light and the generosity of his palette; warm, radiant colors and an undeniable atmosphere of serenity that emerges from his works.
Return from a Provençal market for these two women that we see in the center, a small cart on the right, two figures or sailors, a little higher, in front of their possible small dinghies whose sails are lowered and the sea with its sailboats sailing far away; a path surrounded by lush vegetation and leading to a small cove of which there are countless others on the Mediterranean coast. Stunning. Very nice framing.

Eugène BEGARAT is a painter born in Nice in 1943. At seventeen, he entered the School of Decorative Arts in his hometown then joined the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1964. Passionate about color and light, BEGARAT is part of the great classic trend in contemporary art. He draws inspiration from the technical advances of the Post-Impressionists to construct a personal touch that renews and modernizes pointillism and chromatic divisionism.

At the start of his career, he settled in Brittany to immerse himself in the lights that inspired Félix VALLOTTON and the “NABIS”. He then leaves in search of stronger colored contrasts and travels to southern Europe and Mediterranean Africa (Spain, Italy, Morocco, Tunisia). His style is consolidated and refined at the same time, in contact with the vibrant lights of the South. He returned to settle in France, first in Paris then in Provence, near Vence where he built an open-air workshop/garden in which he installed his models adorned with brilliant fabrics.

He thus developed a work where little by little the horizon disappears in favor of frames of foliage and natural elements sculpted by light. He thus offers infinite variations on women and their clothing, where the radiance of a complexion, the shine of a hair are highlighted by the colorful satins and shimmering silks that he likes to use. Over time, his touch abandons the sole recourse to “Divisionism” to integrate more and more colored areas without light ever ceasing to be the pivot of his art.

Eugène BEGARAT never worried about the quarrels and fashions that mark contemporary art. Indifferent to the critical condemnations which so disturbed the figurative artists of the 20th century, he builds a solid and coherent work around light, color, in order to sculpt painting after painting, his vision of a sublimated femininity, at once eternal and subtly contemporary.

An internationally renowned artist, Eugène BEGARAT exhibits in France but also in many foreign countries. His works are present in many major collections around the world.
