"The port of Ponche in Saint-Tropez"
Oil on canvas,
Signed lower left,
Beautiful work by the painter Auguste Pégurier nicknamed "the first painter of Saint-Tropez" which represents an animated view of the port of Ponche in Saint-Tropez.
Like the Impressionist masters, the artist has a total mastery of the play of light and sunny atmospheres. His painting is characterized by vibrant touches of color allowing to recreate the light of Provence and to express 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 appreciated enough in Paris, he decided to settle in Saint-Tropez where he led a life without material worries as a wine owner.
During the interwar period, he appeared again in Parisian exhibitions from 1924 to 1935.
These works are kept at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris and at the Musée de L'Annonciade in Saint-Tropez.
Size: 50 x 65 cm without frame and 72 x 87 cm with its 19th century gilt wood frame.
