Oil on cardboard 32 X 49 cm mounted in a gilded frame with fluted 41 X 59 cm. Circa 1930.
In 1898, he followed the teaching of Bouguereau, then in Paris the courses of the Julian Academy.
Official painter of the Navy from 1922, but especially painter of the sea all his life. In 1899, he settled in Biarritz until 1911 In 1905, 1912, 1921 he exhibited at the Salon of French Artists works with Basque subjects, a theme to which our table is attached.
This one offers us a perspective on the Rhune, the emblematic mountain of the Basque Country, perhaps from Sarre or Urrugne from a floor in a vision surmounting tiled roofs framed by another farmhouse …
The red and purple hues us place in autumn, when the ferns are dry, but the trees not yet bare. In 1914 the Galerie Devambez exhibited a hundred of his orientalist works which were with Basque subjects and the sea his favorite themes, but had numerous exhibitions around the world and many museums present his works.
