1930's, French Still Life, 'Pears,' Joseph Bontet
About the artist
Joseph Bontet is a painter from the southwest of France, active from the 1930s.
He distinguished himself in the views of the Quercy region, and his hometown Montauban. We also owe him a number of still lifes, whose colors and sense of composition show a beautiful technique.
A contemplative universe takes shape around these favorite subjects, and whose influence of painters from the Montauban school (Marcel Lenoir, Lucien Cadène…) reveals an intimate and luminous world, shaped by a remarkable desire to paint. Declaration of love to his native region, all the more endearing as the working conditions are modest and confidential.
