25½" x 36½" / 65cms x 93cms
Oil on Canvas
Renowned for his luminescent paintings of Venice, Auguste Bouvard’s beautiful canvases have captivated us for years. Lesser known, though just as gorgeous and luxuriant, are his depictions of the rustic and rural French Mediterranean scenes where he spent his holidays.
Almost always signed with his pseudonym Pelletier (his wife’s maiden name), these sun filled canvases focus on the rural architecture and everyday French life and we see the boats, villas, countryfolk, and the simple life captured with Bouvard’s iconic golden hues.
These elegant paintings exude a wonderful confidence, you can sense the relaxation that comes from being on holiday surrounded by such beautiful scenery.
