Fables de La Fontaine et autres contes Exhibition at prieure de cayac-France October/november 2021
Literature and poetry have always been an inspiration. For the 400 birthday of French poet Jean de La Fontaine , I chose to illustrate a selection of his most meaningful fables. Each painting is handwritten with the moral of the history. A moral that is as significant now as it was in the XVIIth century. I chose raw linen as a background that contrasts with the brightness of acrylic paint, the precision of the ink and the light of gold leaves. Enjoy!
