Marine, the return from fishing at sunset after Claude-Joseph Vernet (Avignon 1714 - Paris 1789)
Oil on canvas of horizontal rectangular shape in its early Louis XV style frame in wood, stuccoed openwork and gilded, the return of fishing at sunset is a revival after Claude-Joseph Vernet of one of his works in the series dedicated to the four parts of the day, commissioned by the Countess Du Barry for the pavilion of his castle in Louveciennes. An imaginary coastal maritime scene, idealized and poetized, of a panorama composed of two-thirds sky in its upper part and one-third sea and shore in the lower part; where the essential element, the light, comes from the depth of the painting. Taking as a point of view the bottom of a small bay behind the large sailboat, we find the castle surmounted by a flag, here on the left used in the background in a composition by the master dated 1762. The fortifications and the round tower on the right are also found in the bathers near a shoreline dated 1779. On the shore, the day is slowly coming to an end, the first boats are getting ready to return while two fishermen are busy, one dragging his last ray catch and the other persisting, taking advantage of the last moments of luminosity. Work of the Provencal school of Joseph Vernet of the XIXth century.
