For those not familiar with the artist, I have included his biography below. This is a wonderful large oil on canvas measuring 16 x 24 inches.
Painting is in excellent as painted condition. There seems to be some very minor rubbing along the lower left side edge where it meets the frame. A few very tiny spots of surface grime. On top of being a great painting, it is housed in a great frame.
Looks to be some sort of handmade frame with hand carvings within it. Frame measures 21 x 28 3/4 inches. For those not familiar with the artist, his biography from a gallery that sells the artists work reads: Raoul Viard was born in December 21,1923.He was a self-taught artist, who learned to paint in his childhood by working and reading art books. Viard worked moslty with palette knives and used heavy impasto of brillant colors ranging from warm ochres and reds.
He is best known for his seascapes (Marines). He has exhibited in Haiti and in the U. His work was chosen by the Haitian government to inaugurate the World Health Organization in Washington DC. His work can be found in many private collections worldwide. Illustrations of his paintings can be viewed in John Allen Franciscus book, "Haiti Voodoo Kingdom To Modern Riviera " , The Art of Haiti by Eleanor Ingalls Christensen, and Peintres Haitiens by Gerald Alexis.
