'Beached Fishing Boats in St. Tropez', gouache on fine art paper, by French artist, Maurice Brianchon (1928). A simple but inviting depiction of fishing boats at rest on the beaches of St. Tropez. The artist normally signed his larger works with his full last name. Here, the initials in the lower righthand corner appear: 'M.B.' and documentation from the rear of the original frame (see photos - Note: this is no longer the current backing): 'Maurice Brianchon (1928) St. Tropez'. The artwork has now been re-framed with a new backing. The artwork is in fair vintage condition with evident fading commensurate with age and medium used. Upon request a video of the artwork will be provided. This is an opportunity to own a unique slice of history by a world renowned artist.
About the Artist: Maurice Brianchon (1899 - 1979), French painter and master of decorative arts. Before he dedicated his life to painting, Brianchon created set decorations and costumes for French ballet and many stage productions. He was a winner of numerous prizes including from the United States' Carnegie Institute. A favourite painter of the French President, Vincent Auriol, (1884 - 1966) (in office from 1947 - 1954) he and his wife were frequent guests at the Presidential Élysée Palace. He was awarded the Legion of Honour for his contribution to French arts. For the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, Brianchon was commissioned by the British government in order to record the proceedings with his art. He filled several sketchbooks and ultimately created eight works of art to celebrate the event. Brianchon is internationally collected particularly in Europe, the United States and Japan and his works frequently available at auction in the major global houses.
