PAUL MARCEL BALMIGERE (FRENCH, 1882-1953) PAINTING OF A HARBOR
Signed lower left "P. Balmigére", in oil on canvas; reverse signed "Balmigére" and inscribed "Painted in France"
Item # 808JKQ29


A beautiful coastal scene of a weathered harbor village with its colorful red clay roofs reflecting against the gentle blue waters, a fisherman prepares his boat for the next day while other boats are tied up along unseen docks.  It is such a pleasing work of impressionism, simple and full of life.  Executed in oil on canvas, it is housed in a fine hand carved and gilded custom frame of the period.

Paul Marcel Balmigére was born in Candies in 1882 and studied under Déchenaud and Flameng.  He regularly exhibited at Salon (Salon des Artistes Français) from 1927 through 1938, also exhibiting at the Salon des Indépendants in Paris during the same period and awarded honorable mention in 1930 and a silver medal in 1935 by the Society of French Landscape Artists.
