Lilac & Roses
Moonlit Coastal Scene
Fleurs des Champs, Provence
In this great 1935 work you can almost smell the summer flowers and feel the warmth of day in Provence. The large knife creates a real sense that the flowers have only just been cut and arranged in a vase as if for a photograph to be taken for keeps sake. Lovely impasto brings the whole scene alive. Marcel Dyf at his very best!
