My grandfather came from Toulon in the south of France. When he was young the area was still undeveloped. This painting was taken from an old photograph that he brought to England which showed an old house looking out over the Mediterranean.
French Riviera by Paul Beauvais
Paul Beauvais’ earliest influences were the works of the impressionists. The palette of Claude Monet, the textures of Camille Pissarro and the overall genius of post-impressionist Paul Cezanne. Paul became fascinated with heavy impasto in oil painting and began to use it in all of his work. As an established artist Beauvais began to free up his style and introduce a semi abstract technique. The paintings available in the gallery today represent a beautiful collection of his semi abstract work.
