Artist

Bertrand Girard
Nice, France

Bertrand Girard remembers painting as a child, and eventually turned his passion into a profession. Each piece he creates is a way for him to express his feelings. Many of his works depict landscapes and scenes from Paris, but these vignettes serve as a way to capture a mood, not just a place. Fun fact: Bertrand also plays classical guitar; he remembers picking up his first guitar at age 14 and has played ever since.

You can smell the strong coffee and pastry. Concern and respect for privacy from the server is captured by Girard who is probably sketching at a table unnoticed

Artwork Details

Comments About This Piece

This painting depicts a farm near the Pyrenees in the village of Jarzac. This work captures the play of shadow and light from the summer sun. The painting continues along the edges of the canvas and the work comes ready to hang.

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
