Paris Print by Jacques Donnay
Incredible print of Paris by Jacques Donnay from Belgium. Great purple and orange colors.
" Jacques DONNAY will remain among the most representative Walloon figurative painters of the 20th and 21st centuries.Its delicacy as much as its causticity to chew on the characters, the poetic sense that it highlights for so many years, will classify it one day as one of the great classics of our time. " »Jean DAY
" The man who uses his hands, his brain and his heart is an artist. My job is the search for brightness in an ideal nature, the silhouette in an ideal stature.
Take the time to follow me in the interpretation of my eyes. "
Romantic and Baroque painter at the same time, renowned artist, landscape painter and portraitist, he is one of those privileged people who excel in both disciplines with an ease that leaves you speechless. It remains essentially a sensor of everyday atmospheres, autumn evenings and springtime.
