Claude Marin, A Summer’s Day In Luxembourg

A beautiful impressionistic oil on canvas depicting a sunlit park in Luxembourg by French painter, Claude Marin (1914-2001). Marin painted with such joy and his loose light-filled brushwork reminds us of his French compatriot, Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919).

Sunlit murmurs hum
the beat of July.
As glazed over papers
rest on extended legs.

While a green chair
half pushed into cold grass
dizzy with Summer.

Two thirty
an old shade.
