"Henry-maurice Cahours : "the Oree Of The Village""Certainly, Henry-Maurice Cahours (1889-1974) is better known for his maritime landscapes, especially in the region of Douarnenez, but he did not make only returns of fishing by small foggy mornings, as proof this edge of village splashed with this light which, under a cloudy sky, carves out the contours and opens the shadows. These houses along a sloping street from which a lady in apron and kerchief, carrying her shopping basket, have their enclosed gardens where we imagine hens and vegetable gardens. Perhaps a village in Picardy where he spent his childhood and returned from time to time.
