'Port of Saint-Malo', oil on canvas affixed to board, French Modern School (1984). Although the artist dated this painting '84, it depicts a nostalgic view of the port of Saint-Malo in Western France's, Brittany in 1884 judging by the clothing worn by the characters depicted. The crowd on the shoreline is watching a sailboat regatta starting just inside the port's breakwater. A rather rare sunny day in Brittany brought out the parasols of the sitting ladies on the edge of the old ramparts. The walled city had a long history of piracy, earning much wealth from local extortion and overseas adventures. The city changed into a popular tourist centre these days, with a ferry terminal serving the Channel Islands as well as the Southern English ports of the English Channel.

Discovered in Paris, this is a delightful painting which will cheer up any wall upon which it is placed. It is in good overall condition and has been newly framed with a French-style linen slip. The artist signed and dated the work in the lower right hand but research of the unusual name has not identified the talented painter. Please enjoy the many photos accompanying the listing. Upon request, a video will be provided.
