"Alain Ducot Dit Pito (1924-2000), Gouache On Paper, Navy, 1970s."Alain DUCOT dit PITO, painter born in 1924 in La Réole (Gironde) and died in 2000 in Hendaye (Pyrénées Atlantiques). Senior executive in the merchant navy, he decided in 1949 to live exclusively on his painting. He set up his studio in Saint Jean de Luz and exhibited his painting in Biarritz, Bordeaux, Nice, Paris, London, Bonn, but also in Miami and New York. Its slightly naive style and colorful palette appeal to art lovers; well in spite of himself because of a very modest nature. Appreciated in France, it was even better known in the United States and Japan. This beautiful work of the 1970s, a gouache watercolor, touching and endearing, is the reflection of his talent.
