About

'A Day at the Deauville Racetrack', watercolour on fine paper (circa 1950s), by Pierre Gaillardot (1910 - 2002). Harness racing is an exciting form of horse racing in which the animals run at a specific gait. They usually pull a two-wheeled cart called a sulky, occupied by a driver, although in Europe jockeys can sometimes ride directly on saddled trotters. The Hippodrome in Deauville is in the Calvados Department in the Normandy region of France. The racetrack was constructed in 1862 by Charles Auguste Louis Joseph, Duc de Morny, the half-brother of Louis Napoleon Bonaparte. This splendid expressionist watercolour depicts the moments before the race as the horses head to the starting barrier. Very lively and filled with colour, this work of art is truly a collector's yearning. Newly framed and glazed; in excellent vintage condition commensurate with age. Upon request, a video of this work may be provided to interested clients. About the Artist: Pierre Gaillardot (1910 - 2002), French painter from the new school of Paris whose origins were from the Burgundy region. He mostly depicted scenes of vineyards and winemakers as well as horse races, as he later lived and worked in Deauville. Employing a rather expressionist style, his depictions of horse racing perfectly capture the swift movement of a group of jockeys on their horses. In 1966 he was awarded the ‘Prix Pierre Puvis de Chavannes' upon the recommendation of the Committee of the ‘Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts’ and the City of Paris. A retrospective exhibition of his works was held at the ‘Musée d’Art Moderne’ in the City of Paris in 1967. His works appear for sale at the major international auction houses and reside in collections around the world.
