Format without frame 19x23cm and frame included 33.5x37.5cm It is indeed a very beautiful Fauve watercolor by Charles Bichet, dated 1925, he represents here one of his favorite subjects the Mas-Jambost park in Limoges , his city of heart. I no longer present Charles Bichet, one of the most famous painter in Limougeaud and of the Crozant school, who was also the teacher and the influencer of many other artists today recognized. Charles Bichet was born in Paris where he began his career as a drawing teacher before being transferred to Limoges. He will then stay his entire life in the Limousin capital where he will rub shoulders with other artists such as Paul Thomas, Aridas, Alluaud or his famous son-in-law Léon Jouhaud whom he will train; he will have many other pupils. He set up his easel in the Creuse valley towards Anzême, hence his attachment to the Crozant school, but also to La Rochelle or Paris. After very classic beginnings, from 1903/1904, he destroyed all his previous works and radically changed his way of painting by observing the very first works of the Fauves, he then adopted a much freer touch, sometimes even slightly divided, but above all a palette extremely rich in colors; it will first be practiced on still lifes. Bichet could be considered as a true Fauve painter who painted in this way during the period of this movement and not as a follower of it. He even tried cubism and also produced a few rare collages in the spirit of Picasso. Today, along with his friends Alluaud, Jouhaud and Thomas, he is one of the most sought after and valued Limougeauds painters. He will exhibit alongside them at the famous Galerie Dalpayrat in Limoges. Moreover, it is during one of these exhibitions that he will receive from the master Armand Guillaumin, however reputed to be hard and always stingy with compliments, his honors about his pastels ... Several exhibitions will be dedicated to him. and many paintings are preserved and exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts in Limoges. Watercolor in perfect condition, delivered in an old baguette.
