'Family Farm in France', gouache on art paper, by Michel Debiève (circa 1970s). An extremely endearing depiction of a French family farm, the delight is in the detail the artist has rendered. The viewer may look at it over and over and simply be captivated by the images of the fields, the house, the people, the fields, sunflowers and the trees. Agriculture is one of France's most important industries, the country is self-sufficient in food supplies from cereal crops, to beef, pork and poultry to fruit and vegetables. Not to forget to mention the grapes for wine! Many French farmers use traditional techniques and bio-farms which produce high quality products. French cuisine has much to do with this success as people seek genuine regional products. It is this kind of lovely family farm which grows its produce with care and love. The artwork is in fair overall condition with some minor cracking of the paint on the paper. Much of that gets lost in the detail of the artist's work. Please enjoy the many images accompanying this listing. The work has been newly framed and glazed with non-reflective glass. Upon request a video may be provided.

About the Artist: Michel Debiève was born in 1931, along with his twin brother Raymond, in the North of France. Very early, encouraged by their father, the two young brothers discover their creative sides. After the war, their new step-father bought them their first art supplies: paints, easels and palettes. Later came formal studies at the School of Fine Arts in Valenciennes where the quality of their artwork was quickly recognised and awarded. After two years of painting stained glass for church windows in the early 1950s, the brothers went their separate ways for over 60 years. Michel painted in the very West of France in the city of Nantes and brother Raymond in Provence. Michel Debiève's artworks have been on exhibit in Paris: Galerie Mai, Galerie du Siècle, Galerie La Demeure and at La Porte Ouverte where he rubs shoulders with many renown artists. His works also form part of the collection at the Museum of Fine Arts in Nantes and Valenciennes.
