""cowman Of Herd In Seaside""I give you this painting as long as I can still go up to my attic where I installed my "murissoir", a kind of library with paintings where I stored the quality works, but with an illegible signature, or even anonymous in waiting for the serendipity to make me meet his brother in a catalog, a book or an exhibition, allowing me to identify them ...
Oh! It happens to me three or four times a year, sometimes on works acquired 30 years ago, sometimes the month before.
What can I hate people who dare to do this: when they needed money, so that they do not know, they sold the painting but scratching the signature so that by it, we do not can go back to them ... So I bought this painting a few years ago and it still resists me, so I give it to you such as, "in its own juice" with its cracks and its yellow varnish that does not do not conceal the quality of the work.
It makes me think of those painters of Saintonge who by a brief stay of Courbet and Corot were durably inspired.
This young cow-keeper who contemplates her flock while spinning the wool in a landscape overlooking the sea is very difficult to photograph, so I multiply the images to give you a very small idea of the virtuosity of the touch ...
f a surfer to a track, I thank him in advance and he knows that it is better to deal with a big lean than a dwarf fat!
