Moonlit Coastal Scene
Lilac & Roses
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!
