Oil on canvas landscape in white, cream and blues, 21" by 25" (27" by 31" as framed), signed at lower left "M. Colin" in blue, and signed "Michel Colin" on the reverse and titled there "greve (strand, or, bank) bretonne". This is a circa 1970's or 1980's work by a French listed artist who has been a fixture in the art scene of the eastern part of the country (Alsace, Vosges) for decades. Colin was born in the Vosges region, and studied art in the Strasbourg area. He studied lithography in the late 1960's, and became a professor of art by 1989, after which he dedicated himself totally to painting. Colin's work has been exhibited widely all over France, and also in the United States in Washington, Santa Fe and New York. More than twenty works have been auctioned, all in France. The whites and blue and the technique and composition remind one of the School of Paris paintings of the mid 20th century in France. This spare composition is surprisingly complete, the little houses hunched against the threatening sky and bare coastline. The artist seems to be making a statement regarding man's insignificance and powerlessness in the face of nature. Condition is excellent and this is ready for the wall. .
