'Floral Bouquet in Pitcher', oil on board, by Joseph Paul Louis Bergès (circa 1930s). A shapely ceramic pitcher holds a wild assortment of field flowers. The abundance of springtime colour has been beautifully captured in an impressionist moment, a beautiful excerpt of time. The impressionist whole gives way to fine detail in the individual branches, leaves and flower blossoms. The quality of the work clearly demonstrates the deft creation by a master hand. The piece is in good vintage condition commensurate with age. Signed in the lower righthand corner: 'L Bergès'. Newly framed with linen slip. Upon request a video of the artwork will be provided.
About the Artist: Joseph Paul Louis Bergès (1878 - 1956). was first in his class at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, the city where he spent most of his career. At the same time the artist remained very attached to his small town in the Pyrenees mountains in the SW of France. Bergès specialised in portraiture and still-lifes. His works were exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français as early as 1907 as his reputation gained strength. In 1908 he won a second Grand Prix in Rome and a travel grant by the State via the Augustinian Museum, Toulouse, France. In 1927 the artist became a member of the Jury of the Prix de Rome and on the Committee of the Society of French Artists. After an illustrious career, he was named as an Officer of the Legion of Honour in 1953, three years before he died. The artist's works are found in private international collections and have been featured and sold in the major global auction houses. Publicly his paintings are held in the famous Musée d'Orsay in Paris, le Petit Palais and in other state museums in Toulouse, Quimper and La Rochelle.
