'Terre Rouge' by Wilhelm Goliasch (1982)


'Terre Rouge', oil on board (1982), by Wilhelm Goliasch (1922 - 1986). Although this delightful painting is primarily in aqua blues, greens and browns, the 'terre rouge' refers to the patina of the rich red clays of Provence. That quintessential colour of the famous region is seen in the ochre hills and villages behind the lavender field in the artwork. Regarding the execution of the work, the painting knife strokes are visible in the artist's use of impasto and imbues the work with a textural quality amongst the beautiful colours. In original frame with linen slip and in very good vintage condition. Signed: 'Goliasch' in lower right hand corner.

About the Artist: Wilhelm Goliasch (1922 - 1986) Swiss/French painter of still-lives, portraits and landscapes. Influenced by the school of Paris painters such as Claude Venard and Bernard Buffet.
