Description & Technical information

Jacques Martin-Ferrières painted mostly still life’s and landscape scenes, often travelling to a variety of places and painting everywhere he went. This tranquil painting depicts a peaceful scene of boats docked in a harbour, basked in golden light. Light and warm colours fill the background of the painting, as the golden light playfully bounces off the cool tones of the water. The quick brushstrokes, paired with the romantic scene evoke a sense of romanticism and imbue the feeling of a warm summer’s day in the south of France.
