Beautiful and large canvas of the painter Marseillais: Fortuné Viguier depicting a scene of rural life in the Basses Alpes, namely the cutting of wood.
Our finely crafted canvas transcribes faithfully the nature and the sky of the Lower Alps at the end of the day, at sunset.
Our work is perhaps the painting exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1887 and entitled "Surroundings of Gréoux (Basses-Alpes)".
