"French Riviera, Menton area" c 1926. Oil on Canvas, 26 3/4 x 33 1/2" (sight),

Margrethe Clausen was on a study trip to France in 1926 when she painted this motif of the Mediterranean meeting a seaside town (French Riviera). Rather than the more popular Post-Impression style, she employed the new Modernist-Style, where all the shapes and forms are reduced to their elemental content, yet aim to retain it's subjective mood and emotion.

Margrethe Clausen, 1906 - 1981, was a noted female artist. She had a long and distinguished career, doing shows into the late 1960s, as well as being a judge at the Royal Academy Spring Exhibition. In addition to motifs from France, she was known for her interior scenes in and around her home in Valby, Denmark. In addition to innumerable exhibitions she also has five pieces in Museums and Notable Collections.

Painting in good condition, no repairs. A nail head protruding from the frame. Frame is in fairly good condition, a simple flat molding that paraphrases the railing in the painting.
