A wonderful atmospheric seascape by French Henri Cadiou (1906-1989), depicting the Galician beach of Vigo - a rare painting, exhibited at a major international exhibition in 1958!
Henri Cadiou (26 March 1906, Paris – 6 April 1989) was a French painter and lithographer known for his realist, hyperrealist and trompe-l'oeil paintings. He is credited with being a founder of the "Peintres de la réalité" art mouvement, which later was known as the Réalité/Trompe l'Oeil group
This group of Realist painters had their first exhibition at the Carmine Gallery - in the Saint Germain area of Paris - in 1949. Cadiou would continue with solo shows in prestigious French and International Galleries (Galerie Romanet/Paris, Galerie Bradtke/Luxembourg, as well as in Salons such as the Salon des Indépendants, and the Salon Comparaisons.
Henri Cadiou's work has been shown with the Realité/Trompe l'Oeil Group in Rio de Janeiro, Washington, New York, Tokyo, Copenhagen, Florence, Munich, and all over France.
The second international exhibition of the "Painters of Reality" group was held in Brussels in 1958 - and the painting we present here was Henri Cadiou's exhibited submission to it.
On the verso of the original frame is the label from the exhibition, with the title of the work "Vigo Bay", as well as a customs stamp. Vigo Bay - Ria de Vigo - is an estuary in Galicia, Spain.
An oil on panel measuring 29 x 55cm, the painting is signed and dated (19)58 at the lower left. The overall framed size in its original, good frame -which however shows signs of age/wear - is 44x 70 cm.
