Devant l'Église

$465.00

20th-century French School oil on wood panel attributed to Marcel Bertoin (1897-1983). The work has a subtile texture to the touch.

A rare scene of a Breton church before mass. Marcel Bertoin excels in the art of contrasting colors, and creating a specific focus in his scenes. Here the pinkish brown  facade cleverly contrasts with the bright colors of traditional Breton outfits to support an impressionist storytelling.

About the artist: Marcel Bertoin was a French impressionist painter born in 1897 and who died in 1983. He mostly painted Breton and south of France landscapes. He was dedicated to a colorful palette, round geometry, and a modern approach to impressionism. His highest skill was in his capacity to tell us a story in every scene or landscape he painted.
