Oil on canvas - Ref 01400
by Edith DESTERNES (1901-2000)
France

The Church

At first glance, one is struck by the strength of this work. Then, on examination, one is captivated by this depth of soul and technique.
Edith Desternes uses a thick paint here where black, and dark colors, play a privileged role.
Thus the contrast between the warm and cold tones, surrounded by black, create an intense luminosity reminiscent of stained glass windows from the Middle Ages.
Georges Rouault is present in this powerful work
