"Jean-georges Pasquet (1851-1936) The Church Of San Giorgio Maggiore In Venice"
Jean-Georges PASQUET
(Périgueux 1851 - 1936)
View of the church of Saint Georges Majeur, from the shores of Venice
Oil on panel
H. 24.5 cm; L. 33 cm
Monogrammed and dated 1910 lower right. Countersigned and located on the back.

Provenance: Private collection, Périgord

This atypical view of the Venetian lagoon is taken from the eastern end of the main island, looking towards that of San Giorgio Maggiore and Giudecca on the left. Why atypical? For the simple reason that the tourist area and the viewpoints that we know are taken much further west, near San Marco square. San Giorgio Maggiore therefore appears here in the opposite direction to the usual images, and above all with a magnificent sunset behind his back.

Pasquet realizes here a composition full of force with tones that we do not know him in his Périgordian subjects or of the Atlantic coast. However, its lively and quivering touch is there.

The life of the artist being practically unknown today, we cannot know if this stay in Venice in 1910 is the only one, or if it is part of a more important tour in which the artist really devoted himself to the painting. This composition is for the moment the only one known to the artist outside a geographical area close to his native southwest.
