About

'Seaside Strollers in Cannes', watercolour on art paper, by Yves Brayer (circa 1970s). Even when not in summertime, passers-by and flâneurs in Cannes will find purpose and joy along the promenades of the azure Mediterranean coast. The blues of the water and sky compel one to stop, enjoy the view and appreciate how wonderful life can be. The painting is in good overall condition and has been newly framed with anti-reflective glass. Upon request a video of the artwork may be provided. Signed 'Yves Brayer' in the lower right corner. About the Artist: Yves Brayer (1907-1990) stands among the most celebrated modern French painters. Although he was faithful to the figurative tradition, his ample métier was enriched by his personal vision. His oeuvre proved to be very diverse, for besides his well-known landscapes, he also painted vast canvases, portraits and still lifes. A lover of Mediterranean landscapes, Yves Brayer sojourned in Morocco, Spain and Italy before settling down in Provence. There he was enchanted by the diverse and architectural forms of the Alpilles mountains, and by the vast expanse of the Camargue region with its ubiquitous white horses and black bulls. From then on he spent several months each year working in Provence. He also travelled internationally where he was quick to grasp the unique rhythm and light of each country. When he was in Paris in 1942, Jacques Rouché appointed Brayer costume-and-set designer for a ballet at the Opera de Paris. Brayer passed away in Paris in 1990. A large collection of his paintings are on permanent display both at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Cordes, France and at the Musée Yves Brayer in Les Baux de Provence, as well as many regional museums in his home country. In the United States, Yves Brayer's works form part of the collection of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, among others. Dimensions with frame: H 56 cm / 22" W 68 cm / 26.8" Dimensions without frame: H 40 cm / 15.7" W 53 cm / 20.9"
