Christian Jereczek (1935-2003) - Oil, Menton Harbour, French Riviera
An outstandingly fine work by the listed Berlin-born artist Christian Jereczek (1935-2003), portraying the harbour at Menton, a town on the French Riviera, near the Italian border. Know as the perle de la France, Menton has a clear Italian influence in it's architecture. Jereczek has depicted the setting with all the business of a strategic port, but maintains the aesthetic charms of this fine view, up to the 17th Century Basilica of Saint Michael.
A vivid palette and layered brushwork frame the composition, and the artist employs his delicate and skillful approach to reflection and shadow, in the surface of the harbour water. The composition is well balanced, with the bell tower centralised in the frame, and some details are impressionistic in style.
Handsomely presented in a substantial gilt wooden frame with ribbon moulding and running foliate pattern, as shown. To the reverse, there is a label from the Ormell Galleries, Piccadilly, London.Signed and incsribed on the reverse. On canvas on stretchers.
In fine condition overall. Inspection under UV light reveals no restoration. The frame has some minor scuffing, but is also in very good condition.
