Our opinion :

Halfway between the classic navy inherited from the works of the painter Joseph Vernet (1714-1789) and the architectural perspectives inspired by the works of Hubert Robert (1733-1808), our pair of canvases is characteristic of the Provençal productions of the end of the 18th century. century and early 19th.
The grisaille technique and the use of "chiaroscuro" make it possible to obtain a clever illusion of relief, in order to imitate marble bas relief.
This "trompe l'oeil" work of shadow and light will be particularly appreciated in the South of France, in particular to go with the decorations of Plasterwork.
