About the Artist: Jacques Petit (born 1925), loves colour...and cats. He attended the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. He was pushed by renowned art critic, George Besson, to exhibit his paintings which he did...all over France, then Europe, Chicago and San Francisco, in Canada and in Japan. World famous museums in Paris, Chicago, Djakarta and so many others have Petit's artworks in their collections. Petit is in his 90s now and still has a brush in his hand, not to feed his ego, but instead, because of his desperate optimism. Petit brings his canvases to his studio, he fusses with them, he tweaks them...he reviews them a hundred times. The canvas must sing. He wants his artworks to make the viewer forget the world's troubles and join another carefree world where only gardens are left along with an explosion of floral colour and the peaceful joy that comes with being with friends (Françoise Desbiez in 'Jacques Petit', Nov 2016).
