Le Pêcheur

Le Pêcheur

A charming little painting of a contented French fisherman resting his chin on his arm. Every line on his furrowed brow tells a story and there are certainly are quite a few of them...

Oil on canvas
10½” x 14” / 27cm x 36cm
Year of creation
c. 1960
The canvas has recently been attached to a new stretcher and was probably left wrinkled for many years. As a result, it has a bumpy surface particularly towards the bottom (but don’t we all).

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
