French School
VINTAGE FRENCH POST-IMPRESSIONIST/ CUBIST OIL - GORDES VILLAGE LUBERON PROVENCE

Mid 20th Century

$1,374.30

About

Artist/ School: French School, mid 20th century. The work has some areas of cubism influence in terms of its 'block colours'. Title: Gordes, the Luberon, Provence. One of the prettiest villages in Provence (one of the 'Plus Beaux Villages'), Gordes is perched on top of a hillside around its historic castle. Throughout history, the castle has protected its residents from foreign attacks, plagues, and World War II bombings. The views over the Luberon countryside are stunning, and the village itself is a warren of cobbled streets and ancient houses. Gordes has had a busy history and has its origins from Gallo-Roman times where it was the fortified settlement for the main city of Cavaillon. In the 4th century, it was inhabited by the Vordenses tribe (from where the name Gordes come from, it was customary then to switch V with G). Gordes has used as a refuge for the surrounding inhabitants for centuries, to protect the local people from warring tribes, wars of religion and revolutions. This goes someway to explaining its almost austere appearance, as the continual invasions demanded that it be strongly fortified. Medium: oil painting on canvas, unframed Size: painting: 15 x 21.5 inches Provenance: from a private collection in Provence. Condition: The painting is in very good and presentable condition.
