"The Old Mill Road Villeneuve Les Avignon- Gustave Vidal."Gustave Vidal, Bleached Road of Provence, Old Mill Quarter in Villeneuve les Avignon. Oil on panel signed lower right. Returning from Avignon, a man wearing a hat, a jacket on his shoulder, walks under a hot sun on the bleached road of the old Villeneuve mill; in the background a couple in a cart drawn by a white horse follows suit. In this oil all the technique and virtuosity of the master is exacerbated, whether it is the projecting rocks, the bleached road or the free shadows, everything seems to tell us the heat and the weight of this sun at the zenith in an azure sky. Born in 1895 in Avignon, Gustave VIDAL is a painter of landscape and marine. Winner of the Fine Arts of Avignon where he gets many awards. He participates in Paris, at the Salon des Artistes Français, of which he is a member. He paints landscapes of Provence, Camargue and Corsica. As evidenced by this oil, it is today undoubtedly one of the best great Provencal landscaping of the early twentieth. Excellent colorist, he models the dough with the knife like nobody before; like a mason he builds in three dimensions compositions always of a fairness of the admirable balance. The painting of VIDAL is alive and especially so terribly Provençal. Frame dimensions Height 70cm Width 61.5cm - Panel Height 55cm Width 46cm.
