La Poissonnerie Bleue

Marcel Gatteaux just brought us this souvenir of his recent trip to France. It is presently displayed centre stage in The Rowley Gallery window. I’m hoping that as well as a fishmonger he’ll bring us a butcher, a baker and a candlestick-maker too. There is something about its simplicity and its proportions and the way it fits the frame that marks this as one of his best. See it here on our website and see what a difference a frame makes.

    What a lovely painting, full of atmosphere and a real sense of place. You have made the painting with so much painterly skill. The frame and painting are meant to be together. The work is a lovely object. Let’s see some more like this.
