About

'Autumn in Provence' by Yvette Bonte (1925 - ) gouache on fine paper (c. 1960s). An autumnal view of Provence in the south of France inspired by the region's famous luminosity. Mountains in the distance are covered by a blustery blue Mistral sky - harvest is over and the hills and fields are changing colour. This composition works on many levels. What appears effortless and beautiful at first glance is actually complex and layered compelling the viewer to grasp the wonders of nature. Original frame, new mount and new glass. Signed: 'Y. Bonte' in the lower righthand corner. In excellent vintage condition. Upon request, a video clip of the work may be provided for added context. About the artist: Born in 1925 in the north of France, Yvette Bonté has been on her artistic journey for more than half a century. She is an artist whose original works still recall the masters who've painted Provencal landscapes before her. Yvette Bonté lived and worked in the south of France choosing sun and light because it speaks of life, the colours speak to the joy of living. "With light" she says, "everything fits into the picture". Dimensions with frame: H 35 cm (13.8") W 43 cm (16.9") Dimensions without frame: H 22 cm (8.7") W 30.5 cm (12")
