Colorful, heavily impressionistic acrylic painting with palette knife, the subject beached wooden boats in a sunny Mediterranean coastal landscape, signed at lower left by listed French artist PIERRE MAS (1933-). The work measures 11 1/4" by 27" as framed. Mas used copious amounts of wet-looking, lush paint, creating an interesting surface and texture. Colors are very complementary and harmonious, the turquoise particularly pleasing. Overall, the painting is a most attractive Mid Century work. Condition is excellent. Canvas is not perfectly flat. Mas attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Toulouse (southwest France). He exhibited in Paris and also in New York City. The artist would now be in his mid 80's.
