"Oak Tree in Lavender"

This painting was excecuted in the South of France after a picture. The canvas is made of linen; a much different support for his oil painting that offers a much easier way to paint faster. The lavenders are luring us to go behind the oak tree. "The roof of the painting," the harmony of the leaves spread by the tree from left to right, is symbolic of protection--a mixed technique of "modern impressionism." Later, the artist donated this work to a very good friend, who could not go back to France, his birthplace, because of his terminal disease.
