Last rays of evening on the bay of Concarneau

Fernand Le Gout-Gérard is a painter of light. Like many artists, he loves the morning and evening light, when the sky offers us incredible blazes. Admire with what delicacy this man retranscribes the softness of a late summer day, the concentration of the embroiderers in the foreground, the attitude of the girls playing with their feet in the water, and the smoke of the sardine boats in the open sea. A concentrate of the know-how of this great artist.
