Presented for sale is an oil painting on canvas by contemporary artist Lucien Delarue, titled Port de Villefranche, Cote D'Azur. The painting depicts the incredibly charming town of this small seaside village in Southern France located between Nice and Monte Carlo. This picturesque jewel of a town contains one of the deepest natural harbors in the Mediterranean Sea and offers spectacular vistas of the coast and surrounding hills.
Lucien Delarue is a prominent and beloved French artist who was born in Paris on November 10, 1925. He has won many prestigious awards throughout his distinguished career, and a special exhibit of his work was held in 1970 at the Museum of lie de France at the Chateau of Sceaux. His paintings are unique in capturing the essence of the France that he has explored and loved. His ability to blend soft colors with a touch here and there of brightness and to create depth is truly unsurpassed. This talent is evident in his beautiful paintings that pay homage to the incredible landscapes found in the villages and cities of France.
In recent years Mr. Delarue has had severe health problems and will no longer be able to paint, thus making his available work scarce and very desirable.
The painting is in excellent condition, lovely colors, signed in the front and titled in verso. The painting is set into a recent custom frame.
