'The Terrace', watercolour on art paper, by Maurice Savin (circa 1950s). An inviting scene from the South of France depicts a quiet sun terrace on a balmy day with azure skies. The viewer is invited there to sit, relax, breathe the fresh air and take in the pleasurable lifestyle that is the South of France. The artist's keen eye captures the essence of the scene with broad and colourful brushstrokes, the pencil lines of the original sketch provide a sort of frame for the chairs and table. The artwork derives its beauty from its simplicity while the artist succeeds in transporting the viewer to a better place. That is always a good thing. Newly framed and glazed. The work is in good vintage condition commensurate with age. The piece bears the stamp of the artist's authenticating authority in the lower right hand corner. Upon request a video of the piece may be provided.
