"Armand Guéry-1853-1912"Armand Guéry, born March 4, 1853 in Reims and died May 25, 1912 in Gueux, is a French painter. Guéry is the landscape designer of the Champagne sky; it is also the striking evocative of alpine landscapes. Le moulin de Caurel Starry night Canvas signed lower right 46 x 61 cm A native of Reims, Armand Guéry studied under the guidance of Rigon and Pereire who taught him the art of naturalistic landscapes. Faithful to his region, the artist likes to depict typical trades, local customs, rural nature and the skies of Champagne. The very limestone valley of the Suippe is not very suitable for cultivation, so activity turned in the 19th century towards sheep breeding and the wool economy. The mill depicted in our painting was destroyed during the war in 1914.
