Object description :

"Pierre Faget Germain (1890-1961) "vieille Hostellerie, Dinan?" Brittany, Normandy, Algeria"
Quite rare oil / cardboard by Pierre Faget Germain representing an old city center in Brittany or Normandy, signed lower right. Format without frame 55x38cm. It is indeed a post-impressionist composition by Pierre Faget Germain, which for once, represents neither a view of Algeria, nor a navy, but old buildings of a city; we can read on the signs "The old Hostellerie ... ???" and maybe Dinand on the horizontal one. This is to be confirmed, but it is indeed an old Breton or Normand hotel, as there may be in Rennes, Dinand, Saint-Malo etc ... The composition is as usual quite powerful, painted in knife in full dough. This kind of scene is therefore rather rare in Faget-Germain, an orientalist painter known for his Algerian or Mediterranean subjects, but he also painted mountains, still lifes, but as he shows us here, he has moved a lot in the whole of France. Pierre Faget Germain (1890-1961): He studied at the School of Decorative Arts in Bordeaux. He mainly paints seascapes. He worked with Léon Carré and Albert Marquet. He married in Algiers in 1929. He exhibited in Algiers and in Paris. Two of his paintings adorned the large lounge of the liner "El Kantara". In the journal Oran-Matin Alfred Cazes writes "painter of the sea. He sometimes paints flowers - and masterfully, but it is above all the infinite mobility of the waves that seduces and retains him. Its swells have a soul, its firmaments a language. Exhibitions: Algiers: 1932 and 1934 at the Salon of Algerian artists. Extract taken from the article "The artists of Algeria" Dictionary of painters, sculptors, engravers 1830–1962 by Elisabeth Cazenave, edition Bernard Giovanangeli.
