Two Impressionist paintings of fisher folk mending nets.
Echoing the work of Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947), this charming pair of paintings focus on the use of colour and form, allowing the subject to act as a vehicle to carry these, rather than the other way around. The bold abstraction and vibrant palette recall the early fauvist landscapes of Braque and Matisse, such as Les toits de Collioure (1905). The artist highlights the energy and charm of this delightful fishing scene with a wonderful confidence and flair.
