Oil on canvas

Bold color is used to brilliant effect in this oil on canvas by the French painter Gabriel Deschamps. The quaint tablescape of summer fruits and the coastal scene that serves as its backdrop are rendered in a bold palette with lively brushwork that embodies the mature style of this Post-Impressionist artist. The result is a vibrant and engaging work that displays the luminosity and perspective of his finest compositions.

Deschamps was born in 1919 in Bonneville, Haute-Savoie, near the Swiss border. He moved to Paris to study at the École Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts and became an art professor for the state in 1939. He was a member of the Salon d'Automne, and he is best known for his fresh, vibrant coastal views of the South of France like the present work.
