The creeks of Marseille Fortuné CAR The waves breaking on the rocks in the creeks of Marseille. Oil on panel signed lower right. Fortuné Car was born in 1905 in Marseille and died in 1970. He is a famous Provençal artist, born in a family where painting is transmitted from generation to generation. In the 1930s, he took over the studio of his uncle, theater designer. This vast workshop will allow him to create sets for theaters and theaters of the region, including the Opéra de Marseille. In 1939, mobilized, Fortuné CAR entrusted his workshop to his younger brother. When he returned, he abandoned the painting of stage sets to move towards easel painting. In this district of the Old Port, he will very quickly find his way in the vein of Provencal painting, with its landscapes of the hinterland, its small ports of the coast and its scenes of fishermen. His painting, strong and colorful, enriched with a beautiful material born of his mastery of the brush and especially the knife, was gradually exposed throughout France. His image as a painter of Provence has also been exported, particularly in Canada, where Fortuné CAR was a member of the Royal Academy of Painting of Montreal.
