Oil on canvas. French school of the 18th century, painter of the suite of Joseph Vernet.
In a coastal landscape idealized and magnified by our painter, a boat docks in a cove sheltered from the wind. Under a diaphanous sky blazing in the setting sun, fishermen hurry to stow their nets while in the distance a ship is approaching a fortified port. The figures emerging from the frame under the rocky arch add a touch of poetry.
Through this original work, our painter, like Joseph Vernet, reveals a keen sense of observation of light and a real sensitivity, offering us an ample composition with a warm and peaceful atmosphere. Thus, space and light are the main protagonists of our painting.
In its 18th century carved and gilded wood frame with decoration of foliage scrolls facing each other in the corners.
Dimensions: 58 x 71 cm - 75 x 88 cm with the frame
