"Le Grain de Sable in Bonifacio, Corse"
Oil on panel,
Signed lower left and lower right in a legible manner,
Located on the back of the panel by the artist: "14 Bonifacio Corsica".
Beautiful luminous work of the painter Pierre Faget-Germain which represents a view of the Grain de Sable at Bonifacio in Corsica.
The contrast of colors and the play of lights perfectly transcribe the maritime atmosphere of the place. "Le Grain de Sable" owes its name to its shape. This gigantic block of limestone has been naturally sculpted with erosion.
An artist best known for his orientalist paintings, he trained at the Beaux-Arts and at the School of Decorative Arts in Bordeaux. After his marriage in 1929, he settled in Algiers. He worked with painters Léon Carré and Albert Marquet. He adopts a solid and sincere post-impressionist style.
