"Gustave Vidal, 1895-1966 - Marseille, Sailboat In The Old Port."
Gustave Vidal, 1895-1966, Marseille, sailboat in the old port. The old port of Marseille, out of fishing. Oil on panel signed lower left, titled on the back. In this work all the technique and virtuosity of the Avignon master is exacerbated. He sets the scene, the moment, the season and the place. Whether by the color palette of the houses on the quay bathed in sunlight where the landing of the morning fishing is busy, contrasted by the variation of the reflections of the sailboat on the waves which preserve a semblance of freshness; everything seems to communicate to us the heat of the sun at its zenith in the azure sky of the beginning of summer in the old port of Marseille. Born in 1895 in Avignon, Gustave VIDAL is a landscape and marine painter. Laureate of the Fine Arts of Avignon where he obtained numerous awards. He participates in Paris, at the Salon des Artistes Français, of which he is a member. He painted landscapes of Provence, Camargue and Corsica. As this oil attests, today it is undoubtedly one of the best great Provencal landscapers of the early twentieth century. An excellent colourist, he models the dough with a knife like no one before; like a mason he builds his canvases in three dimensions. Compositions always of a correctness of an admirable balance. VIDAL's painting is alive and above all so terribly Provençal. Oil in superb condition perfectly restored, cleaning and varnish carried out in the rules of the art. Period frame. Dimensions 46 cm high by 55cm wide. The gallery has several other works by Gustave Vidal.
