Gustave Vidal was a French painter best known for his depictions of Provençal landscapes and harbor towns in the French Riviera. His thick impasto technique, applied with both palette knife and brush, was influenced by Impressionism and the abstract work he came across while spending time in Paris. Born in 1895 in Vaucluse, France, the artist went on to study under Pierre Grivolas at the School of Fine Arts in Avignon, where he was encouraged to paint en plein air. Vidal mainly exhibited in Avignon and the Paris Salons. He died in 1966 in Avignon, France.
On the back of the canvas is the number “161” as well as a stamp reading “G. Vidal France” and the artist’s mark. In addition, there is the stamped phrase “Reproduction Interdite” – translating in English “Not to be reproduced”.
The painting with frame measures 25 1/2 inches wide X 32 1/2 inches tall.
The painting itself is 24 1/2 inches tall x 18 inches wide.
Both the painting and frame are in excellent condition.
