Léon LURET (1880 - 1969)
Un Ghât du Gange à Bénarès
Oil on hardboard panel in a beautiful exotic wood framing.
Signed bottom right.
- Work: 44 X 23 cm
- Frame: 60 x 40 cm.
Partly palette knife painting.
We recognise in this superb creation the "paw" of the artist, the predominance of light and the richness of the colours.
In excellent condition.
In India, a ghat (in sanskrit (ghāṭa) घाट) is a set of steps or bleachers that cover the banks of the rivers or the banks of ponds. They allow to touch the water, often of a sacred river, including the Ganges in Haridwar and Varanasi (Benares).
Léon Luret travelled very often from his native Provence to North Africa, mainly to Morocco and Algeria.
As a self-taught painter from the Provence, he excelled in genre scenes, portraits and landscapes.
He studied architecture, the effects of light and his orientalist genre are characterised by a very rich colour palette.
Towards the end of his life, he abandoned the brushes for the benefit of the knife, visible in his works by a subtle impasto.

I did not receive the painting and the money did not come back
Thanks.Good delivery. Unfortunately the colors are much duller than in the photo!
The picture had been removed from the frame, there were no hooks or cord present for hanging. The frame was battered, in separate pieces and a piece of timber completely broken off the frame. Not fit
Sad to find painting was very dirty which was not obvious in pictures or description. Having to spend quite a bit getting it cleaned.
