"Louis Pastour"Oil on panel quite typical of the Master Cannes which is part of his series of red sails. Nicknamed the "pintre dou souléu" for his sunny palette, Pastour is above all a colorist. The work of light is the keystone of his painting. He masters all the nuances. His work is multiple and despite the recurrence of his themes, he manages to surprise us with each of his works. The technique of the knife, with its generous impastos, brings power and character, while its refined touch, close to abstraction, surprises by its modernity. Like the Fauvists, he uses pure color at the end of the tube. But above all, his own personal way of finding the tone directly on the support and wiping the knife after each touch to preserve its purity, gives to his painting a recognizable freshness and brightness that sign his work.
