Description

A beautiful post impressionist village scene with more than a touch of art nouveau, notably in the subtle-yet-powerful colours. This is not surprising, as the artist, Louis Bougeois-Borgex (1873-1959) spent much time in Brittany and certainly encountered the Nabis group of artists
Bougeois-Borgex (1873-1959) initially studied at the Fine Arts Academy of his native Lyons with Jean-Louis Loubet and Castex-Desgrange, and then in Paris with Léon Gérôme. He exibited at the Lyons Salon from 1895, and at the Salon des Artistes Français from 1898. In Paris, Bourgeois-Borgex was close to to the Montmartre artists community, Aristide Bruant and, by association, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
Our oil on canvas measuring 38 x 46 cm is signed and dated 1915 (or 25?) at the lower right. It is situated Wimille, which is a village in the North of France in the Pas-de-Calais - just opposite Folkstone.
The artwork is presented in a more recent frame by A.Goude, one of the most expensive and exclusive framers in France. The overall framed size is 56 x 63 cm.
Paintings may be viewed in Norwich and in Paris, as well as in London and Cambridge by appointment. Please contact us if you would like further details and images of an artwork.
