Beautiful and rare work of the painter Auguste Pégurier nicknamed "the first painter of Saint-Tropez" which represents a house in Provence on the heights of Saint-Tropez.
Like the Impressionist masters, the artist has a complete mastery of the games of light and sunny atmospheres. His painting is characterized by vibrant touches of colors to convey the light of Provence and express a poetry in his works.
Student of Cormon and Carolus-Duran at the Jullian Academy in Paris. He exhibited at the Salon of French Artists in 1880. Not being popular enough in Paris, he decided to settle in Saint-Tropez where he leads a life without material worries as wine owner. During the inter-war years, he appeared again in Parisian exhibitions from 1924 to 1935.
These works are preserved in the Orsay Museum in Paris and at the Annonciade Museum in Saint-Tropez.
