This charming unsigned oil on panel represents the little port of Sainte Maxime located in south of France,on the Gulf of St Tropez,that we can guess in the background.
In the foreground some small pleasure boats are moored on the pier and float on a beautiful turquoise blue sea.
An impression of peace and serenity emerges from this small painting,where the blue of the sky and that of the sea meet on the horizon with a pretty light.
The painting is surrounded by its painted stuccoed wooden original frame.
It was perhaps originally gilded,because we can see traces of gilding under the paint.
Please note some small accidents and lacks of stucco in places.
At the back there is an old label with an address in Paris,rue Soufflot,near the Luxembourg garden.
Dimension : 12’’ x 15,5’’ framed (30,5cm x 39,5cm)
9,4’’ x 13’’ the panel (24cm x 33cm)
A very pleasant painting that will make you want a trip on the French Riviera !
